The Cedar Falls Public Safety Department is proud to announce they will be joining “The Pink Patch Project” raising money for the local Beyond Pink TEAM. The Pink Patch Project (PPP) is a collaborative effort between more than 300 public safety agencies across the nation—all working to raise awareness for breast cancer research, education, and treatment. In 2017, participating agencies raised more than $700,000, all of which was donated to various foundations supporting breast cancer research and awareness. The PPP hopes to raise more than $1,000,000 in 2018. The Pink Patch Project centers on a vibrant pink version of our police and fire uniform patches. Officers and firefighters can wear the pink patches on their regular uniforms during October. The patches are intended to encourage discussion amongst citizens about the importance of early detection and treatment in the ongoing fight against the disease. The Cedar Falls Public Safety Department will sell the pink patches to members of the community—all proceeds will be donated to the Beyond Pink TEAM. The patches are $10 each and can be purchased at the Police Department, Fire Department, City Hall (220 Clay Street), and at various community events.

UPDATE: Thanks for sharing. We have found the driver with your help. On August 8, at approximately 11:40 AM, the traffic light on the northeast corner of 3rd/Main Streets was knocked over, causing several thousand dollars in damage. The vehicle involved is pictured below—a newer style black Chevy 4 door pickup with a sunroof and chrome trim, pulling a white Sportsman Sportsster 5th wheel camper. The vehicle was occupied by a male and a female. This vehicle is captured on video causing the damage and leaving the scene. Anyone with information is asked to call the Cedar Fall Police Deparment. Thank you.

UPDATE 8/15/18: Due to the concern for community safety, the CFPD reviewed video footage from Walmart and the claim appears to be unfounded. At this time no report has been filed. _____________ There is a post on Facebook this morning that has been shared over 6,000 times about an incident at CF Walmart around 8:30 last night where a young lady was followed throughout the store and then approached by the same people in the parking lot. In the post it says, "authorities have been notified." As of this time no police agencies in Black Hawk County have received a report. CFPD was made aware of the posting early this morning. We sought out the individual who made the post and they are scheduled to meet with police today. –Chief Jeff Olson
