Our mission is to support our members, and members of the community of San Rafael. To that end we support a number of community based organizations, the majority of which focus on our youth. Our broader mission includes supporting legislation and initiatives that promote public safety and support our brothers and sisters in the greater law enforcement community. We are proud to be your community partners and appreciate the ongoing support we receive from the residents of San Rafael. We look forward to working with you to keep San Rafael a thriving community focused on families.

Community Involvement

San Rafael Pink PatchPink Patch Project:  In honor and recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the San Rafael Police Department and San Rafael Parking Services will be participating in the Pink Patch Project San Rafael. This project is a quickly growing law enforcement public awareness campaign that has taken hold in Southern California, specifically Los Angeles County. The San Rafael Police Association is leading the effort to raise awareness about breast cancer. For the month of October, patrol and field personnel will wear pink and black uniform patches, in lieu of standard issued patches, to show their support for breast cancer awareness.

Several community partners have joined in support of this program, including Zero Breast Cancer of Marin, the Marin County Department of Health and Human Services, Kaiser Permanente, and Alex’s Dry Cleaning.

The commemorative pink patches are available for purchase online through the San Rafael Police Association, and at the San Rafael Police Department Main Office, during business hours only, for $10 each (cash or check). The proceeds of patch sales will go to Zero Breast Cancer Marin, a local not-for-profit organization, with a mission to help individuals and communities understand scientific research on environmental risk factors and lifestyle variables that influence breast cancers. They promote disease prevention through targeted communication of evidence-based recommendations that support health and wellness at key stages of life.

No Shave November:  Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide (WHO). There’s a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November’s mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer in our efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle.

In 2019, members of the San Rafael Police Department were authorized to participate in the fundraiser and not shave for the month of November. Members of SRPD also made individual donations and were able to raise $2,125.00 for the No Shave November Fundraiser.

National Police Week in San Rafael:  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines, law enforcement agencies across the country were unable to honor our fallen brothers and sisters with the same ceremonies we have traditionally used in the past.

In order to make sure these heroes’ memories continue to live on forever, the San Rafael Police Association provided over 20 downtown businesses in San Rafael with their own Thin Blue Line Flag to hang in their store fronts.

Seeing these flags in store windows along our downtown business district provided a sense of inspiration to our officers and a strong sense of togetherness with our community.
