Cave City KY patch
Merrill WI patch

True to its name, Cave City, Kentucky, is in close proximity to the world’s longest known system of caves, the over-390-mile Mammoth Cave National Park. Visitors to the park fuel the tourism industry on which the city thrives. As such, the patch of the Cave City Police Department pays homage to the caves with the stalactites hanging from above. Also depicted on the patch are the rolling hills of Kentucky and a layout of the commonwealth superimposed by the two men portrayed on the Seal of Kentucky.

Merrill, Wisconsin, is colloquially known as the City of Parks due to its 15 outdoor recreational areas. The nickname is so synonymous with the city that it proudly is displayed on the service patch of the Merrill Police Department. The vista in the center of the patch depicts the historic Lincoln County Courthouse as seen through the trees when entering the city from the South. The patch’s light-blue background symbolizes the Wisconsin River, along which the city was founded in the mid-19th century.
