As you probably are aware of by now, I have been collecting law enforcement shoulder flashes since late 1994. In Canada, they are referred to as "shoulder flashes" as most reflect light. Elsewhere, they are called shoulder patches. I specialize in a many types of shoulder flashes, inluding: Customs Officers,
Canadian SWAT/ERT, Counter-Terrorist,American SWAT, Police Academy, State Police SWAT, Special Constables, and, Provincial Offenses Officer patches. Here in Ontario, many By-Law Enforcement Officers, in addition to being "peace officers" under the Police Services Act, are also sworn in as "Provincial Offenses Officers". This allows them to enforcement not only by-laws, but also in some cases provincial acts, as municipal by-laws and provincial statutes frequently overlap. I do have a small trade list, which I have posted. I also am looking for various patches, for which I will pay a large reward for authentic patches.

I have also listed some of my favorite police items, along with why I like them. I have also started a page of law enforcement addresses. However, instead of changing them every month, I will continue to add to them whenever I can . I have also scanned many patches for your viewing pleasure. Please feel free to copy any of them.

I should also point out that I collect only NEW, UNUSED patches. They make nicer display items than used patches. Most of my patches are authentic, as I keep all letters from the respective law enforcement agencies. With some of my harder to find patches, I display the patch with the accompanying letter. (Usually framed)

At times, I do auction patches with ebay. However, I first list the patch on my trade list. If I can't trade it after a few weeks,
I will auction it. When I auction patches, I include a photocopy of the accompanying letter. I do this to let other collectors know that I do not knowingly deal with fake patches. Here in Canada, knowingly selling a fake patch as authentic is fraud. For your convenence, I have included a link to the
ebay police patch auctions I have also added some links to some of my favorite sites on the Internet to visit. Feel free to check them out.
