Special police badges have become a more common sight especially in larger agencies. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issues anniversary badges every five years to boost officer morale and honor the agency's heritage. The agency emerged in 1973 from a merger of the Las Vegas Police Department and Clark County Sheriff's Department. The agency also produced a 9/11 badge commemorating the officers who helped in New York. View these badges, which were designed by Jimmy Smith, co-founder of an agency museum, and produced by Sun Badge Company. Photos courtesy of Sun Badge.
