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.
