The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s patch displays a replica of the state’s official seal. The center shield features a bald eagle, a grizzly bear, and a crescent moon. Two more grizzly bears representing courage and strength stand on a scroll inscribed with the motto, “Service and Protection.” The helmet illustrates state sovereignty, and the circular band and buckle symbolize the connection between the state and federal governments.

The patch of the Lacy Lakeview, Texas, Police Department has a blue background, representing awareness, persistence, and justice; the red letters reflect bravery and resilience; and the white circle indicates purity and innocence. An olive branch surrounds the city’s emblem. The red and white star symbolizes the department’s commitment to its community.
