The police department is partnering with the Alamance Regional Charitable Foundation to support their Pink Ribbon Fund. Money from the fund helps cover cost for women to get diagnostic procedures they may not otherwise be able to afford. The department implements minimum standards established by the Board for the training and certification of more than 40,000 city, tribal, county and state law enforcement officers, corrections officers, parole and probation officers, fire service personnel, telecommunications, emergency medical dispatchers and private security providers. "Either a personal family member or a friend, so it's another way we can show support in the community".

"Any dollar amount will help", Genesis Center for Breast Health nurse Melissa Frantz said. According to the hospital, about 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Frantz said they will exceed that number in 2018.
