I was shocked at how tiny the badges were when I moved here. I'm more accustomed to the dinner plate sized shields of the West...

Most badges in Michigan fall along these lines
Cop Talk

Most Counties use something like this for their deputies.

Here is a document version of ours.

Cop Talk

Ours are gold and there is a banner on the bottom point with our number.

Of course . . . . ours say our rank . . . this one says "Sheriff," but most say "Deputy Sheriff."

Except for my first agency, every one since has gone with the LAPD style Centurion shield. I think most of SoCal has that same shield, made by Sun Badge out of Ontario, CA. The first agency had another design from Sun Badge, shield with a full wreath around it instead of the sunburst cutting the middle.

The only difference with the various agencies is what they put in the middle, with most using some type of relevant building or mountain range with the state seal in the middle.

The only agencies in SoCal not using the Centurion shield are the various sheriffs, LASD has a 6 point star, Orange County has a 7 point star, Riverside County has a 6 point star, and Ventura County has a 7 point star. CHP has a 7 point star. Long Beach PD has a turtle shield. The University of California and California State University cops used to have 7 point stars, not sure about now. I'm sure there are others, but those are the ones I remember.

Ours are pretty much the same thing. 7 point star, silver for grunts, gold for SGT and up.

Wow. I haven't seen a 'Patrolman' badge since 1986 when they were considered to be sexist.

I wish I had mine. Sadly, they were all destroyed.

That's what I thought too! I developed our ID cards and refreshed the badge on the card to reflect "officer" but we still order badges with "patrolman".

I kinda like the old school feel of it. The chief is always supportive so we don't complain about the little things. .

I was talking to some coppers from CA the other day. They were passing trough town on a cross country bike ride. One noticed that my badge said "patrolman" and made the same comment.

Sharp looking badge! I always liked the stars on a shield.

Thanks. I wasn't nuts about the "need" to change, but was satisfied with the outcome. The committee came up with options & then the whole department voted for the selection.

If you look close, you can see it incorporated some facets from previous designs we've had.:

When my dog retired it was the right time to find something else to do on a full time basis. I left the SO and now work part time at a small town PD and love life. I get to wear a polo shirt and shorts to work and actually have time to talk with the people on the street rather than run call to call and worry about what admin. thinks.

As for the Mercedes, I do get some grief for it but the PD is not my primary source of income anymore.
