Cops from the Hume Local Area Command (LAC) traded blue caps for pink ones to raise money for breast cancer research.

Hume LAC commander acting superintendent Andrew Koutsoufis and Bowral Police Inspector John Klepczarek represented the region at Sydney Cricket Ground for the Pink Test on January 5.

More than 100 officers sported the bright caps and rostered officers gave up their wages for the day to be donated to the McGrath Foundation.

“There were many police who supported the day and did so because many have family or friends affected by the hideous disease, while others just wanted to support the great initiative.

NSW Police Acting Commissioner David Hudson was joined by Glenn McGrath and Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland at the test in support of the pink gesture.

Funds were raised to support McGrath Breast Care Nurses, who provide physical, psychological, and emotional support free of charge to patients from diagnosis and throughout their treatment journey.
