SEPTA POLICE TO WEAR NEW DISTINCTIVE SHOULDER PATCHES

 SEPTA POLICE TO WEAR NEW DISTINCTIVE SHOULDER PATCHES
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning Sunday, Sept. 20,


each of SEPTA's 229 uniformed officers will be sporting new patches on their sleeves to help distinguish SEPTA officers from members of other police departments, a SEPTA spokesperson said today.
 The new patch, shaped like a shield, has the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Seal inside a circle located in the center of the patch. Beneath the circle is printed "Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority." At the top of the patch is a SEPTA logo with the words Transit Police beneath it. The patch itself is blue with gold lettering and piping, except for the red, white and blue SEPTA logo.
 "The design of the patch was a result of suggestions from our officers," said SEPTA Chief of Police Ron Sharpe. "The main reason for the change was to make ourselves more discernable from other police with the added benefit of a spruced up image."
 Sharpe said that another difference is that the patches will be worn on both sleeves now instead of just one.
