April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and in recognition, officers with the Bradley University Police Department (BUPD) will wear special teal colored patches on uniform shirts. The unique patches are designed to bring awareness to sexual assaults and to celebrate the survivors of such crimes.
Chief Brian Joschko says, "Multiple resources are available to victims of sexually oriented crimes but many are unaware of the reporting methods, resources, and counseling available to them in our area." Throughout the month, the BUPD will be partnering with groups across campus in support of sexual assault awareness initiatives.
This marks the first time in its thirty year history that the BUPD has authorized a special uniform patch.
