Due to security concerns, we are unable to provide patches to the general public. Requests for patches will only be honored for law enforcement agencies that agree to use the patch for public or professional display. All requests for patches on behalf of an agency must be received on department letterhead signed by the requesting department’s Chief of Police or designee and the requesting agency must send their departmental patch with the request. Your departmental patch will be displayed in our secure section of our facility. Patch requests from sworn law enforcement agencies within the United States can be submitted on official agency letterhead and mailed to:
