Various milestones in the history of Shreveport, Louisiana, are depicted on the patch of its police department. Flowing prominently at the bottom is the Red River, along which Shreveport was founded in 1833. The trees featured in the center represent the logging industry, and the American eagle symbolizes integrity and freedom. To the right is a profile of the Caddo Indian, who once occupied the local territory.

The city of Franklin, New Hampshire adopted its name in 1820 in honor of Benjamin Franklin. Another famous American statesman, Daniel Webster, is depicted on the patch of the Franklin Police Department. Webster was born in 1782 in a section of Franklin that was then part of Salisbury, New Hampshire. His birthplace has been preserved and is a state historic site.
