Colorado State University PD patch
Desert Hawk Fugitive Task Force patch

The patch of the Colorado State University Police Department in Fort Collins features the school’s prominent stone-columned Administration Building as seen from the south end of the Oval, an expansive park one-quarter mile around. The Oval has been a center of activity on the campus since 1909 and is lined with 65 American elm trees, some of which are depicted on the police department patch. A number of other academic and administrative buildings line this green area, the oldest of which was built in 1881, 11 years after the university’s founding.

The Desert Hawk Fugitive Task Force was founded in 1992 as a joint effort between the FBI’s Phoenix, Arizona, office and local law enforcement agencies to target violent fugitives and repeat offenders for arrest. The task force currently is staffed by two special agents and members of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Mesa Police Department, and Scottsdale Police Department. Its diamond-shaped patch features a vigilant eagle over a background of the sun rising above the desert. The bottom of the patch depicts a set of handcuffs, a symbol of the task force’s great success since its inception.
