City of Hallowell Patch
Lynchburg Police Patch

The patch of the Hallowell, Maine, Police Department is based on the city’s seal, illustrating the area’s commerce in the 1800s. In the center of the seal, a train is shown transporting valuable granite. Also, two ships are depicted in the Kennebec River, representing both the shipbuilding industry and the transport of goods that made Hallowell a very active port in central Maine.

The City of Lynchburg, Virginia, was founded along the James River in 1786 by ferry operator John Lynch. The patch of its police department depicts a figure holding the scales of justice and a cornucopia, a symbol of nourishment and abundance. Behind the figure is a vase with growth, symbolizing plentiful water, and a train, signifying a transportation crossroads. The nearby Blue Ridge Mountains are in the background.
