DENTON (WBAP/KLIF)-The Denton Police Department is rolling out new badges and patches. Officer Ryan Grelle says they were planning to get them for the department’s 115th anniversary. “Originally it was going to be our sesquicentennial badge, we were going to do it for the anniversary in 2023 so we were trying to figure out what we would do historically on it,” Grelle said. However, Grelle said after it was designed, Denton Police Chief Frank Dixon liked them so much he didn’t want to wait until 2023.
Grelle says they incorporated the same eagle logo that was on the department’s badges during the first years in operation while also including newer features.
He said the new badges and patches were well received.
