MERRIMAC — Chief Eric Shears is pleased to announce that the Merrimac Police Department is participating in the Pink Patch Project this month.

The Pink Patch Project is a collaborative effort between public safety agencies nationwide to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support cancer research organizations.

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Merrimac Police officers will have the option to wear the pink patches purchased by the Merrimac Police Association in order to show support for all those who have battled – or still are battling — breast cancer.

The department’s participation also serves as a show of support for Newburyport Police Officer Meg Tierney, who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer.

“Meg has been an inspiration with her openness throughout her fight, and we’re honored to support her and everyone impacted by this invasive cancer,” Sgt. Richard Holcroft said. “It is very important that we bring awareness for early detection and work to make sure that people who are fighting know they are not alone.”
