The Mobridge Police Department understands
that there are many people that collect law enforcement patches
as a hobby. We understand that most people treat those patches
and the agencies from which they come with respect by only
displaying law enforcement patches in a collection.
However, we also understand that there are
some people whom possess law enforcement patches with the intent
to use them in a manner other than as a part of a patch
The Mobridge Police Department takes Homeland
Security and officer impersonation very seriously. Therefore, we
have decided that we will not, under any circumstances,
circulate our current in-use patch design to anyone but active
members of our agency.
We have decided to make available our
previously issued patch design, which is no longer in-use. This
patch, which is pictured below, was utilized by the MPD from the
1970's thru the beginning of 2005. Again, due to Homeland
Security and officer impersonation concerns, the purchase of
this patch is restricted to members of law enforcement.
Law enforcement personnel wishing to purchase
an MPD Collector Patch must send $5.00 (five dollars USD), a
self addressed and postage paid envelope, and a patch request on
your official agency letterhead to:
MOBRIDGE POLICE DEPARTMENT PATCH REQUEST
LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER
110 1ST AVENUE EAST
MOBRIDGE, SD 57601
Your identity and employment status may be
verified with your letterhead agency to determine if you are
eligible to receive an MPD Collector Patch. Retired law
enforcement personnel are eligible to make a patch request, but
must still have a request on your former agency's letterhead
with a sponsor signature by an active member of that agency.
Please do not email our department for patch
requests. Your email requests will not be
answered. We have received numerous requests by people
and prefer not to email the above information to every
individual, as it is time consuming for staff. This page was
created to direct eligible collectors how to request and receive
our MPD Collector Patch. Limit of 1 (one) patch per requestor.
