Currently a uniform pin in both antique silver and gold are in production, as well as, a full color PVC patch and vehicle stickers. A senior and master level of this insignia are not initially being produced, but consideration will be given if the market demands it.
We admit that this insignia is long overdue. The reason we have finally moved in this direction is demand and so that medics can get their insignia from the same place as the operators they serve with. We also believe that this endeavor will help reduce unethical and illegal infringement of the SWAT Operator Insignia™ by those producers who slap a star a life on it, in it, or around it and call it their SWAT Medic logo. We hope that you like this design, but most of all, thank you for your dedicated service to your team, community and profession.
The SWAT Operator Insignia™ has been adopted nationwide by law enforcement and corrections agencies as their official SWAT qualification insignia. It is our hope that our newest product, The SWAT Medic Insignia™ will be embraced in the same manner.
The appeal of this insignia is that it is very professional looking, not overly aggressive or politically incorrect and symbolizes the ideal characteristics of a SWAT Medic.
- Eagle: Strength, Honor & Integrity
- Rifle: Firepower
- K-Bar: Stealth
- Lightning Bolt: Speed & Forcefulness of Action
- Star of Life: Safety, Medicine & Life

HISTORY OF AMERICA’S SWAT OPERATOR INSIGNIA™
In 1993, members of a suburban Detroit SWAT Team were dissatisfied with their current SWAT emblem and set out to craft a new emblem that they believed embodied the spirit and mission of a law enforcement tactical team. These officers were inspired by the U.S. Navy SEALs and their hard earned and treasured, Trident insignia. The result of this inspiration was an idea that eventually became what is now known as America’s SWAT Operator Insignia™.
In 1997, CMI began marketing and selling this insignia. CMI was the driving force behind its national and international commercialization. Eventually, the owner of the SWAT Eagle© logo sold the design and all of its intellectual property rights (past, present and future) to CMI. We thank those officers who came up with the symbol, the owner of the design and copyright for allowing CMI to buy the rights to the mark, and of course, the U.S. Navy SEALs for being the role models that ultimately inspired America’s SWAT Operator Insignia™.
