    Symbolism of Our New Uniform Shoulder Patch

    The shape of the patch is symbolic of a shield and representative of the officer's charge to "serve and protect" their community.

    The black background is in memory of law enforcement officers who lost their life in service to their profession.

    Gold lettering representative of the professional ideals expressed by the Mission Statement and Core Values of the Grand Forks Police Department.

    Blue water splits along the bottom of the patch representing the river forks and its role as the foundation of our community. (City Flag)

    Green riverbanks stand for life and future growth along the river. (City Flag)

    Red feather recognizes the region’s Native American heritage. (City Flag)

    Yellow abstract stalk represents the region’s reliance on agriculture. (City Flag)

    The date, 1880, represents the year the first Chief of Police for Grand Forks, James Ryan, took office.
