Patch call.

The patch of the Defiance, Ohio, Police Department depicts the city as it began. In 1794, General "Mad" Anthony Wayne established Fort Defiance as a base for operations against all opposing forces. The city derived its name from this pioneer fort.


The Pierre, South Dakota, Police Department serves the state capital. The agency's patch features the state capitol building and a shield with the colors of the United States. Red symbolizes courage, strength, and valor; white stands for peace and truth; and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
