University of Nevada, Reno Police patch

The New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, Police Service is built upon the philosophy of community-based policing. The department’s patch proudly indicates that its officers are “working hand in hand with our community.” A set of hands support the town and its river port and complete the maple leaf, a symbol of Canada.

The background of the University of Nevada, Reno, Police Service’s patch represents Truckee Meadows, a high desert valley at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The state seal, in the center, depicts a partial sunrise behind a mountain range and includes symbols representing the state’s natural resources and heritage of mining and agriculture. The bottom of the patch features the year of the university’s founding.
