Steamboat Springs has iconic views and visual aspects that touch the heart of locals for generations and visitors from around the globe. These same elements are incorporated into the new Steamboat Springs Police badge and patch, which was unveiled in the fall of 2018.
Around the world, the uniform badge is the most visible and recognizable symbol of policing, seen by many as a sign of law enforcement authority.
The classic shield shape is customized to be as unique as the community the department serves and protects. The view of Mt. Werner coupled with the historic downtown area is front and center on the badge. The use of the snowflake embodies our collective strength and the mountain pride of our winter heritage, while mirroring the city’s signature snowflake spur symbol.
Each badge will reflect the officer’s rank and assigned number.
Complementing the uniform badge, the shoulder patch integrates other key features of the community that officers have chosen to serve.
The natural environment inspires us on a daily basis and the new patch honors the four seasons and the community’s legacy of service.
Each patch is unique to the community it represents and have become popular collectibles. Due to the demand and cost, Steamboat Springs Police charges $5 for each patch and only 1 patch per person. To purchase a patch, send a check or money order to:
