Flashing Their Badges

Friends of the Boulder City Police Department recently donated a collection of around 275 patches from law enforcement agencies around the world. Some of the patches date to the early 1960s. They were recovered from the police station when some remodeling was being done and were sitting in storage. Here, Police Chief Tim Shea, second from left, accepts the patches from Friends board members Dr. Larry Smith, president, far left, John Chase and Marcela Fastow on Friday.
