Franklin Police Department introduces new badge

Post Date:09/07/2017 2:15 PM

badgeThe Franklin Police Department began issuing new badges to officers yesterday. The updated design incorporates Franklin’s City Seal set over a rendering of Franklin Police Headquarters. Over the last year, the Department has been working on a design that better reflected the community and the police officers who serve it.

“Throughout history, shields were used to protect those responsible for protecting others,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “Our shields are a symbol of integrity and authority. Our badge has evolved from generic to unique and is an acknowledgment, of every officer who wears it, that we value our oath to serve this special city, our residents, and one another. I am very proud to wear this badge.”
