NKPD helps Breast Health program

Published 11/20/2019

The North Kingstown Police Department visited South County Hospital on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, where they presented a check for the $1,425 they collected to benefit the Breast Health Program at South County Health.

During the month of October – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – the Police Department sold special pink North Kingstown Police patches to the officers and the public for $10 each.

After the officers saw a video that was posted on the South County Health Facebook page to remind women of the importance of getting regular mammograms, the department decided to donate the proceeds from the patches to the Breast Health Program.

Claudia Swain, Vice President of Development at South County Health was overjoyed by the North Kingstown Police Department’s unexpected act of generosity.

“Thank you to the North Kingstown Police Department. We have always enjoyed a wonderful working relationship with the police department and we appreciate all they do for our community,” Claudia said.
