During the month of October, the women of the SCPD will be selling pink versions of the department’s shoulder patch for $10 with all proceeds benefiting the Caps 4 Courage organization.

“Men have No Shave November, so this was a way for women to be involved,” said Sgt. Judy Kellen, one of the organizers of the fund raiser.

The department partnered with The Sioux City Police Officer’s Association and The Friends of Sioux City Police Department to fund the patches.

In addition to selling pink patches, officers with the department can purchase a special pink version of the department’s badge for wear during the month of October.

The Pink Patch Project was started in 2013 by the Seal Beach Police Department when they wore pink versions of their patch for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, according the Pink Patch Project website. Since then, over 390 departments have participated and over $1 million have been raised to benefit various breast cancer research organizations.

“We were the first agency in Iowa to participate and since we signed up, seven other agencies have also signed up,” added Kellen.

For this year, the officers have selected to support the Caps 4 Courage organization which is an endeavor of the newly created Foundation 4 Courage. The not-for-profit foundation was started by cancer survivor Patty Considine. Caps 4 Courage provides decorated boxes to patients receiving their first round of chemotherapy at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center in Sioux City. The boxes contain an inspirational unisex hat, a letter from another cancer survivor to the patient, a hand painted stone, and other items meant to support and encourage the patient.

Patches can be purchased for $10 at the front desk of the police department, 601 Douglas St, or they can be ordered by sending a check or money order to address below.
