TEMPE, Ariz. — Arizona State University police officers will wear their support for sexual assault survivors on their uniforms’ sleeves for the next month.

The ASU Police Department says its officers during April will wear special teal-colored “ASU Police” patches on their uniforms.

The special patch is the same as the regular patch except for the teal coloring that includes the addition of teal ribbons on each side of the state seal.

According to the department, the patch is intended to increase awareness, support and encourage conversation with officers about sexual violence awareness, response, recovery and prevention.

The department says it considers sexual assault a serious crime and takes all reports of sexual assault seriously.
