American Patch And Pin

When asked where we have our patches done we are quick to say American Patch and Pin. Over the years we have had many patches made. We had Retired Baltimore City Police patches made in both full size and baseball cap. Then we had Pink Baltimore City Police Patches, Motto Patches, all three of these designs came in both full size and smaller baseball cap sized patches. We did 2015 Riot patches, Motor and Marine unit anniversary patches. Every time we ordered no less than 300 sometimes as many as 600. Before Ken found American Patch and in every time we made an order we had problems, That is why Ken went looking for a new company and found American Patch and Pin. Ken has had more than 1000 patches made, only having to send his design in, and with no questions they make the patch, First sending the mock up witch has always been spot on. I don't know what else to say, other than if you want your patches made fast and made right, oh and affordable. Go where we go, contact the fine folks at American Patch Company. to switch to their page click HERE American Patch And Pin​ an Award winning manufacturers of Custom Embroidered Patches, Lapel Pins, Challenge Coins and Trading Pins.

Below is the Commemorative Shoulder Patches we had made by The American Patch Company. These represent our 1952 Shoulder patch, prior to 1952 The Baltimore Police Department didn't wear a shoulder patch. The first shoulder patch came in that year and was designed as a Rocker type patch, they used a Black background, with yellow/gold fonts and outline/boarder When they made this patch it was Black with Gold/Yellow Border and Fonts. A little known fact is that around the same time they had these made they had some White/Blue patches made too. The idea was to put the Black/Gold patches on an officer's the Coat and Class A uniform Blouse, while on the shirt they were thinking about putting the White Patch that had a Blue Boarder, and Fonts. After serious consideration they went with black/gold on just the coats at first, eventually adding them the shirt because by now Officers were not wearing coats in the summer months anymore, and would need a shoulder patch on their shirts too. These Blue/White Commemorative Shoulder patches can be purchased, they come in a set that has bother the black/Gold and a White/Blue.

Baltimore Police Historical Society

Baltimore Police Historical Society put the articles found on this site together using research from old newspapers, old books, old photographs, and old artifacts. We rely more heavily on information written at, or near the time of the incidents or events that we are researching. We do not put too much weight on the more recently written historic information, or information that has been written with a biased opinion, or agenda. We will not tell our readers what to think about our past, as much as we will tell a story as it was written with the hopes of our readers will form their own opinions. We tell a story about what happened, and not why it happened. That said, ever so often we might come across a story that to us is so exciting we might express an enthusiasm in our writings. We hope the reader will still form an opinion of their own based on the information written at the time, and not information more recently written that has a so-called "filtered past" or that has been twisted and pulled in the direction of a storyteller's personal feelings or agenda. Please enjoy the site and feel free to write us should you have any questions or information.
