OBSOLETE PATCHES
BlackSheep Productions 2009
For the purpose of this site and page patches shown here that were at one time worn by members of the M.P.D. while on duty are known as OBSOLETE PATCHES. They may not have been issued but were worn.  For example baseball hat patches may not have been ISSUED to a special unit but they wear them and it is allowed. If there is need of any correction with patches on this page please send me an e-mail so I can correct it. 
This photo to the right (although in reverse), shows an MPDC Officer in April of 1940 wearing the MPDC patch shown to the left.
Contact Us
Please send pictures of patches I do not have on these pages

I have not been able to obtain the patches below, I would be grateful for any assistance in helping me with this goal.
This patch is being worn by a firearms instructor around 1980.
