The training level and skill sets that many patrol officers possess today are far more advanced than generations past. This evolution is due to the ever-increasing number of threats to our schools, the workplace and our communities at large.


Professional, forward thinking police agencies realize this fact and have started a movement to ensure that they can respond swiftly and effectively to a myriad of possibilities by providing select members of their patrol force with advanced training and equipment that were once strictly reserved for highly trained tactical team members. This forward operating strategy of deploying Tactical Patrol Officers© has now become standard operating procedure in contemporary law enforcement organizations and is a crucial element of a well-crafted response to life threatening critical incidents.


This insignia was designed by CMI to help build Esprit De Corps for officers who complete specialized training in the response to the active assailant. Further, when your fire service awards our Rescue Task Force Insignia© which is the same design, but with different tool symbols (axe & star of life), all the stake holders that impact the outcome of life or death to the victims of crime, terrorism and mother nature herself, become a unified team. One mission, one team, one unifying symbol.


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 Tactical Patrol Officer.


Patrol Leads The Way!

  • Shield: The protection that the officer provides to the community.

  • Sword: The honor & integrity with which officers’ must conduct themselves.

  • Lightning Bolt: The speed & surprise required when called upon, or forced to act, to save a life.

  • Rifle: The special equipment that the officer must be prepared to use to save lives.
