Police Department

Pink Patch Project

October 2021 was the first year that the Duluth Police Department participated in the public awareness campaign, the Pink Patch Project. This year is the third consecutive year DPD will be participating in this innovative campaign.

During the month of October, members of the Duluth Police Department will be wearing these commemorative pink patches and/or pink bracelets to raise awareness and show our support for those who are affected by cancer.

The commemorative patches will also be available for the public to purchase for $10/patch during the month of October. This year, along with the pink patches, you can purchase a pink koozie for $3/koozie. 100% of the proceeds raised will go to the American Cancer Society to raise awareness and help the fight against all cancers.

In 2021, the Duluth Police Department raised $2,853. In 2022, the Duluth Police Department raised $1,572. In 2023, $1,000 was raised. This year, we hope to raise even more!

Patches and koozies can be purchased online at the DPD ACS Event page. If you purchase a patch or koozie online, send your receipt to police@duluthmn.gov and we’ll send you your item(s) upon confirmation of purchase, or you can stop at the DPD’s lobby, 2030 North Arlington Ave., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday and a volunteer will give your patch and/or koozie upon confirmation of your online purchase.
