Cary Police patch

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) patch depicts an Osage Indian warrior’s shield crossed by a peace pipe and an olive branch, derived from the Oklahoma state flag. An eagle, symbolizing vigilance, stands atop the shield, and the microscope and scales of justice on either side represent criminal investigation and criminal justice. The OSBI’s founding year is located beneath the seal.

The patch of the Cary, North Carolina, Police Department was developed in 1996 by a local artist. The state is depicted in the center of the patch, superimposed by a clock that stands in the city’s historic downtown. The triangle represents the area of the state where Cary is located—between Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, known as the Research Triangle Park.
