Here's a pic of my flat badge. As posted above, it's a typical MI city PD badge:

Cop Talk

A few cities use the centurion style shield here but not many. Grosse Ile comes to mind.

I've got enough credit to retire but would only get $48 per month since I'm not 55 (they deduct 5% for every year away from 55 until a minimum payment level it hit) .

When I hit 55 years old or 25 years in FRS it will be a nice retirement regardless.

Ah, good that you stayed in FRS; it's a god system;

I've got it set so that my high 5 average will be wayyyy up there with a ton of OT, so I'm gonna retire at 53 at close to 100 % of my base salary....

Good luck in your "retirement " gig, it sounds like fun.

One of the guys who works for me did 30 years in FRS. He retired in 2004 and gets a six figure retirement salary. He makes more in retirement than he does as a pilot.

To get this back on track though -

I wish I had mine. Sadly, they were all destroyed.
I worked for two PDs before where I work now. Both of my badges from there say "Patrolman."

Well, if you're gonna be on the Island you gotta show how awesome you are.

I grew up in Wyandotte. We could only look across the water and wish we were BOI.

we don't have badges. Just an ID Card.

Once I had a badge. Back in the old days.

Clyde, you probably wear a tan uniform?

In which case the green letters would go well with it.

I wish. We've got NYPD blue uniforms. We wear polos with a badge patch, so generally I don't wear my real badge much at all.

The green lettering is darker in person than it is on S&W's website. It really doesn't look that bad.

I'm sure it looks fine. Do you wear class A's at all, or just the polos?

Our police officer badge is shamefully generic, a basic shield. The supervisors have a much nicer shield with a eagle at the top. There has been progress toward an LAPD-style badge for officers, as surveys have shown that is what the general public associates with municipal police, doibtless due to the influence of movies and TV.
