Walking across campus you may notice Public Safety with a particularly colorful uniform for the next few days.
Law enforcement agencies state wide have been participating in the “Pink Patch Project.” For the month of October, police offers have been switching out their normal patches for pink ones to help with breast cancer awareness.
The University of Nebraska Foundation paid for both UNO and UNMC campuses to purchase and wear the pink patches. The patches are also available to the public for purchase. A portion of the money made from public purchases will be donated to Breast Cancer Research.
All 26 Omaha law enforcement agencies will also be donning the pink patches. Those patches will also be sold for donations to various non-profits.
