Police Challenge Coins

The city of Boston created the first American police force in 1838. Since then, brave men and women across the country have taken up the call of protecting their communities and fellow citizens. As police forces spread across the country, so too have custom police challenge coins. These days, you’d be hard pressed to find an officer who doesn’t have a

of their own.

Police Challenge Coins

Over the years, we’ve worked with departments across the nation. From the largest organization, the NYPD, all the way down to even small sheriff’s offices. We’ve seen just about every police coin design imaginable, and yet somehow, our law enforcement customers continue to surprise us.

Ordering Police Coins for your department

Across the country, and many other countries as well, police officers are the people on the front lines of keeping the peace and ensuring the safety of millions. A lot of people only sleep soundly in their beds at night because they know there’s a well-trained group of men and women on call 24/7 to intercede should something happen. Honoring the hard work, dedication and sacrifice of these brave individuals is not only necessary, it’s the least we can do for all that they do for us.

The challenge coins police officers carry are often presented for excellence in the line of duty just like military challenge coins. This particular similarity comes from the fact that challenge coins enter the law enforcement industry because retired and discharged soldiers often head into law enforcement when their term of service is over, and they bring a lot of the traditions of the military with them into their new professions.

However, the uses for law enforcement challenge coins don’t stop at honoring individual officers for a job well done. Custom police coins are a great symbol of belonging, and therefore are often given to all of the members of special teams and task forces. But one of the primary places that police and military coins differ is in the fact that police department coins are just as likely to be created for members of the community as they are for the officers themselves.

For soldiers in the military, the hard work they do often takes place far from civilian eyes. Even though they fight for their nation and to protect their fellow citizens, those citizens very rarely have any idea about the specifics of their duty and their sacrifice.

Police Coins for the Community as Well as Officers

For soldiers in the military, the hard work they do often takes place far from civilian eyes. Even though they fight for their nation and to protect their fellow citizens, those citizens very rarely have any idea about the specifics of their duty and their sacrifice.

Police officers work shoulder to shoulder with the people they protect and serve. Patrol officers often work the same beat for years at a time. When you spend that kind of time within one community, creating ties with the people within the community is inevitable. Given these tight-knit relationships, you’re far more likely to find coins intended to be handed out to citizens.

Often, police challenge coins going out to community members are designed in recognition of helping officers to best accomplish their tasks, or they can be dedicated to informing the public of a certain service the department offers. Another common goal of police department challenge coins is fundraising. Whether it’s for raising funds for the department itself, or in honor of a worthy cause, the power of challenge coins for this purpose is undeniable.

Celebrate the Truest Partnership with Police K9 Challenge Coins

SignatureCoins-Montgomery-Police-and-YoschiVentura-Police-ChallengeCoin

Man’s best friend plays an important role for soldiers and police officers alike, and the men and women lucky enough to work closely with police dogs will all tell you that it’s the best partnership they’ve ever had. Unlike riding with a human partner, an officer’s K9 companion never complains about their lunch choices, is unwavering in their loyalty, and will always listen attentively when they complain about the rigors of the job.

Given their importance, every officer’s furry friend deserves a police coin of their own. However, seeing as how the importance of the coin is likely to be lost on a police pup, it’s better to create coins for the K9 unit officers on your team to honor their hard work. The pups will be happier with treats and belly rubs.
