Yankton, South Dakota Police Department’s patch reflects the city’s history as the first capitol of Dakota Territory in 1861. The riverboat, chapel, and hospital also serve as reminders of Yankton’s past, as does Discovery Bridge, representing the trek of Lewis and Clark up the Missouri River.

The patch of the Merriam, Kansas Police Department features a depiction of a train, representing both the beginning and the great success of the city as the town grew upon the arrival of the railroad. To the left of the train is a picture of the Merriam Depot. The tracks still operate today.
