The new Chief of Police wanted the department’s uniform patch updated and wanted a badge design similar to the Police Officer’s Association Badge, particularly with the new eagle top. This patch redesign required that the city seal be recreated from existing, old artwork. Below is the best copy of the original they could provide. To do the recreation required doing substantial research to identify certain elements in the supplied image that could not be properly recreated without knowing what the original object was and what it actually looked like. Seals often contain elements from history which can make locating images a challenge. Once the seal had been recreated it was incorporated into the patch shape and color matched. The badge redesign simply changed a few elements on the Police Association badge. A side benefit to this work was that the police department would now have clean and clear artwork to use in print materials such as business cards and other media.
