A memorial isn't complete without a photograph of each fallen officer and an image of his or her agency's patch. Displaying these items helps to preserve the perpetual memory of these brave officers by putting faces with the names and recognizing the agencies that these heroic officers served.
If you have a patch to represent any agency or officer who has made the ultimate sacrifice, please follow the steps below to have it displayed on the Officer Down Memorial Page. To guarantee the best possible quality of the scan, please send your agency's patch to the address below. If you wish to scan the patch yourself and submit it electronically, please skip to the electronic section.
U.S. Mail (preferred method)
Your patch will be returned if you include a self addressed, stamped envelope.
Electronically (see below for guideline and examples)
Please note that only scans of shoulder patches will be used. Only in extremely unique circumstances will we be able to use an emblem other then a shoulder patch (ie, if the agency doesn't use a shoulder patch or the agency no longer exists). Please do not submit images of badges, logos, or computer-generated images. Any image that is not a scan of a shoulder patch will not be used.
