Wellesley’s police officials will add a little pink to their blues this month.
The Wellesley Police Department is recognizing national Breast Cancer Awareness month with a commemorative pin on the police shield. The pin is a signature pink breast cancer awareness ribbon with pink handcuffs on either side.
According to a post on the Wellesley Police Department’s website, uniformed police officers will wear the pin just under a right shirt-pocket nametag this month. Police dispatchers will where the pin on their shirt.
Chief Terrence Cunningham and Lt. Jack Pilecki envisioned the idea, according to the post.
