NYPD Strong !!

I cannot begin to tell you how proud I am, when I get to see the insignia that we designed and produced being worn by officers. I’ve had pictures come in to me from agencies all around the world. It is a simple recognition of the hard work that goes into the entire design process & manufacturing. That being said, sometimes the most meaningful photo isn’t from a major metropolitan police department, or an tier 1 anti-terror unit, but one from an individual who has chose to wear your insignia into harms way.

This photo was taken by one of my NYPD brothers, who is also a Marine. I won’t ID him, for obvious reasons, but suffice to say that he is part of the legacy of what truly makes the NYPD as great as it is.

Never Forget, a department is only a name, it is the officers who make it great.

January 2019 Update

Huntzman Enterprises started 2019 on a high note with the introduction of several new designs

Wisconsin State Alcohol & Tobacco Enforcement Regulation

Wisconsin State Alcohol & Tobacco Enforcement Badge

Ca. Los Angeles Police - Major Crimes Division

NYPD Detective Bureau - Hostage Negotiation Team

Reproductions: As always, if the patches are made by us they will have our sticker on the reverse, unless of course it has a Velcro backing. In the case of the stickers, we change them often in design, information and color of ink used. While this is not foolproof, it does help to keep the reproduction artists off balance. We have sometimes seen a particular patch that was produced in a later year using an earlier year’s sticker.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

October 2018 Update

So, the fall season turned out to be a bit busier than I anticipated. As a result I got behind in doing updates. I have gone through and worked on getting the graphics done and will be doing a mass update to play catch-up through February 2019.

September 2018 Update

Well, summer is officially over, but things are still hot over here at Huntzman Enterprises.   

This summer saw the debut of a couple of new insignia:

DHS HSI Crisis Negotiation Unit – New York Office

US Coast Guard – Hurricane Harvey Rescue Operations

As always, if the patches are made by us they will have our sticker on the reverse, unless of course it has a velcro backing. In the case of the stickers, we change them often in design, information and color of ink used. While this is not foolproof, it does help to keep the reproduction artists off balance. We have sometimes seen a particular patch that was produced in a later year using an earlier year’s sticker.

Sadly, we just learned that the ‘Spartan Helmet’ patches we did for the Gelderland-Zuid, Netherlands Politie Interventieteam have been reproduced by a well-known patch counterfeiter in Spain. Fortunately, there are a number of differences between these fakes and the originals which makes them easy to spot.

We also produced a challenge coin / bottle opener for the NYPD Counter Terrorism Division, but getting a decent picture to post up has been eluding me. I promise to get one and list it up shortly.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

July 2018 Update

Well, summer is in full swing and things here at Huntzman Enterprises have been quite busy, both professionally and personally.   

While it has been chaotic with all the new designs being produced it has also been a bit of a challenge to some medical issues that arose.  Fortunately, these have been address and we are well on our way to recovery. This has caused a backlog in terms of updating the website with the latest designs, so I will do my best to keep things in order of production.

May / June saw the debut of four new insignia:

Andrew G. Nelson (Author) Logo - This logo was designed for author Andrew G. Nelson, a retired NYPD sergeant. It incorporates the NYPD flag design, but modified in the form of a sergeant's chevron. They were done in both color and subdued variations. These were produced as giveaways in connection with his line of mystery / suspense novels. For those interested, you can find his website here: www.andrewgnelson.org

Richmond, Virginia Police 'Bike For Blue Memorial Ride' Patch

Assumption, Illinois Police Regulation Patch (There is also a subdued version)

Burgos, Spain Police Narcotics Patch

As always, if the patches are made by us they will have our sticker on the reverse, unless of course it has a velcro backing. In the case of the stickers, we change them often in both design, information and color of ink used. While this is not foolproof, it does help to keep the reproduction artists off balance. We have sometimes seen a particular patch that was produced in a later year using an earlier years sticker. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

April 2018 Update

Well, things here at Huntzman Enterprises have been quite busy here of late, and I am just now finding some free time to do a monthly insignia design update. It's my intention to do a monthly listing of all the new patches, pins or coins that have come out in the previous month. It's our way of helping collectors know what authentic items are coming out onto the market.

Welcome to the new Huntzman Enterprises website

If you're reading this, please allow me this opportunity to welcome you to the re-designed Huntzman Enterprises website. 

The first website,  created back in 2002, was great for the technology that existed then, but  eventually it failed to keep up with the times. In 2013 several things occurred on a personal level that made updating the site a major chore and the last update was done a short time later in 2014. 

In 2016, Squarespace was recommended to us for another website that we were building and we found that the experience was incredibly simple. After the completion of that site, we decided to make the transition from our old host to Squarespace. 

PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to transition over to the new site, as quickly as possible, you might encounter some issues with the shopping portals. These are still in production, as we assess our inventory, and we ask that you please be patient. As previously noted, the last update was in 2014, so there are new items which will be added.

With the addition of the BLOG option, we hope to keep folks updated as to what insignia is being produced. As some of the units occasionally allow for direct sales to collectors, we will look to provide links if they are made available. 

Thanks again for visiting and remember to bookmark our page.
