Background: During the month of October, the Sheriff’s Department took part in a nationwide public awareness campaign called the Pink Patch Project. Deputies were able to purchase special pink patches for their uniforms and wear them throughout October. The Deputy Sheriff’s Association of San Diego County is donating all the proceeds from the patch sales to The Scripps Research Institute.
