RANDOLPH — Chief William Pace is pleased to announce that the Randolph Police Department is planning a fundraising campaign to raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness starting this week.
As part of the Alzheimer’s Awareness Campaign, the department will be partnering with the Massachusetts Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association to sell special purple shoulder patches with the Alzheimer’s ribbon on them.
Patches will go on sale starting Thursday, Jan. 2. A total of 300 special patches are available for sale, and the fundraiser will last until the supply runs out.
The cost of the patches is $10 each.
“The Randolph Police Department is honored to join in the fight against Alzheimer’s. Our hope is that with this donation, we can assist those in need of vital services and strengthen patient care for those fighting this disease,” Chief Pace said. “We hope that we can positively represent members of our community, and their families, who are battling this disease.”
Randolph Police will be donating funds from the campaign to the Massachusetts Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Randolph Police have had great success in the past with the Pink Patch Project and the Autism Awareness Project, and they encourage residents to participate in this latest fundraiser as well.
To purchase a purple patch as part of the Alzheimer’s Awareness Campaign, visit the Randolph Police Station at 41 South Main St., or send a check for $10 to:

RANDOLPH — Police Chief William Pace is pleased to announce that the Randolph/Holbrook Pop Warner Cheerleaders are holding a “Back the Blue” rally this coming weekend.
Saturday, Nov. 9, at 2 p.m.
The Randolph Intergenerational Community Center, 128 Pleasant St., Randolph.
As part of the rally, cheerleaders will be showing off special cheers for law enforcement officers and sharing information on supporting local police.
This is the first time that the cheerleaders, who are a staple at football games in town, will be holding this type rally. It is being coordinated by the team’s head coach, Jenn Abramson.
“We are grateful for the support of the cheerleaders and encourage residents to attend the rally on Saturday,” Det. Kevin Gilbert said. “It will be a terrific opportunity for the community to meet us and learn more about what we do.”
The cheerleaders will also be supporting breast cancer awareness at this event.
The rally is free to attend.
The Randolph/Holbrook Pop Warner Cheerleaders recently qualified for a national tournament at Walt Disney World in Florida, and donations can be made at the rally to help fund the trip.
Members of the Randolph Police Department will also be on site to meet with members of the community. The rally comes after the RPD participated in the Pink Patch Project, where officers wore pink patches during the month of October to raise awareness as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This was the third year in a row Randolph police wore pink patches as part of the project.
RANDOLPH — The Randolph Police Patrolmen’s Union Local 18 and the Randolph Police Association are pleased to announce that their second annual Charity Golf Tournament raised more than $8,000 last month.
The tournament was held on Sept. 15 at Easton Country Club, and had over 50 players.
Proceeds from the tournament will help fund various programs put on by the Randolph Police Association over the course of the next year.

After a long day of golfing the players were treated to a dinner, catered by the staff at Easton Country Club.
Several raffle items and silent auctions were also available for bidding throughout the day.
More than 30 individuals and businesses from the community came together to support the tournament through either sponsorships or donation of raffle items.
“The support for this tournament has been tremendous over the past two years,” said Officer Kevin Gilbert, who helped to organize the event. “We look forward to continuing to sponsor our great community programs and on behalf of myself, Officer Matthew Rodman and everyone else at the Randolph Police Department, we greatly appreciate all of the support from those played and donated.”
