Police Patch Policy


Resized Patch             Pink Patch 2



Thank you for your interest in the San Marino Police Department. Due to the large amount of requests from patch collectors and other law enforcement enthusiasts around the world, we regrettably find it necessary to limit the popular practice of trading law enforcement patches and other items of law enforcement memorabilia.

The uniform patches of the San Marino Police Department are restricted. Because the patches are with city funds, as well as for security reasons, it is our policy to only issue uniform patches to authorized employees of the department.

Our uniform patch is not currently available to the public and is not available for purchase. We thank you for your understanding. The SMPD, however, is currently participating in the Pink Patch Project. As part of the fundraising efforts for breast cancer awareness and treatment, a pink version of our official patch is available for purchase.

The pink patch is available at a cost of $10 each. If you are interested in purchasing a pink patch or if you want additional information, please contact Detective Patrice Garcia at (626) 300-0726 or preferably by email at pgarcia@smpd.us.
