The University of Delaware, in the city of Newark, was established in 1743. The patch of its police department depicts Memorial Hall, erected by citizens as the state’s World War I memorial and listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. It served as the university library from 1924 to 1963 and now houses the Department of English.

The city of Bradenton, Florida, incorporated in 1903, is located on the south side of Tampa Bay and is bordered by the Gulf of Mexico and the Manatee River. The patch of its police department features the United States, Florida, and Bradenton flags, which symbolize the agency’s service to its country, state, and city.
