71st ROC Breast Cancer AwarenessFor the month of October, the Plymouth Police Academy’s 71st R.O.C. will be wearing pink ribbons on their khaki uniform shirts in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Countless Police Departments throughout the Nation have replaced their standard shoulder patches with the Police “Pink Patch” during the month of October as a reminder of their commitment towards raising awareness amongst those they serve. Each member of the 71st R.O.C. has been touched by the impacts of Breast Cancer whether that be directly through their family members, friends, loved ones or simply through acquaintances.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year in the United States, about 255,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 42,000 women die from the disease. Men are also susceptible to breast cancer with about 1 out of every 100-breast cancer diagnosis in the United States being found in men.

The pink breast cancer ribbons that the 71st R.O.C. are displaying above their left breast pocket, have become the worldwide symbol of breast cancer, displaying the cause, raising awareness and bringing communities together in solidarity for the fight against this horrific disease. From this simple yet powerful pink ribbon, the 71st R.O.C. can show their support to those affected by breast cancer and the hope for a brighter future. In addition, Plymouth Police Academy Director Eileen Goodick, will be donating funds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation on behalf of the Plymouth Police Academy 71st R.O.C. this month.
