Police Department working to raise awareness for Breast Cancer and Child Advocacy

Throughout the month of October, Rochester Police Officers will be wearing pink Velcro badges on their outer carrier vests to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness.

According to a recent social media post, the Rochester Police Department supports those suffering from the disease, their families, and the survivors.

“We hope that our bringing awareness to Breast Cancer may prompt someone to get an exam, get screened, or get any treatment they may need.”

In addition to raising awareness for Breast Cancer, some members of the department started growing beards to help raise money for Beards for Bucks, a charity that supports Child Advocacy Centers throughout the Granite State.

Mayor Paul Callaghan says he applauds the efforts of the Police Department to help raise awareness and give back to the community.

“We have the best Police Department in the State of New Hampshire,” said Callaghan. “I could not be more proud of the work they do for the people of Rochester. Not only in their everyday work, but in their many efforts to raise awareness for the causes they believe in.”
