The Pink Patch Project

The Nevada County Law Enforcement Agencies have participated in The Pink Patch Project since 2018. Over the last several years the Grass Valley Police Department, Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, Nevada City Police Department and Truckee Police Department have partnered with the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation to raise thousands of dollars. These funds have helped purchase necessary equipment for the breast cancer imaging center at the Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital. In October of every year our officer’s will be wearing their pink patches with pride. 


Volunteer with the Department

In November of 1995, the Grass Valley Police Department formally established a community program called the “Volunteer Patrol.” The goal of this program is to recruit, train, and deploy citizen volunteers to perform routine, non-hazardous police functions, thereby allowing officers to concentrate on those duties that only police personnel can perform.
