Payson Police
Toccoa Police

The Payson, Arizona, Police Department's patch depicts an elk against the pine tree-covered skyline of the Mogollon Rim, a stunning geographical wonder that stretches for 200 miles across central Arizona. A place of abundant wildlife and a plethora of outdoor activities, Payson sits in the heart of the Rim, which attracts visitors from all over the world to see its panoramic views.

Sectioned into four unique squares, the patch of the Toccoa, Georgia, Police Department patch represents the city, state, and nation that the agency protects. The green and white "T" graphic displays the city logo; its shape mimics the picturesque Toccoa Falls illustrated in the bottom left section of the patch. The bottom right depicts another Georgian geographical wonder, the Currahee Mountain, named for the Cherokee word for "stand alone."
