  • Stolen Retirement Badge

    My brother, a retired Colorado Springs, CO police officer, recently shipped a retirement badge from that agency to a friend in the Ventura, CA area. Problem is, when the package was delivered to Ventura Co., CA, the side had a fine slice in it and the badge was missing. I know, my brother used poor mailing management; but, none-the-less, if any person flashes a Colorado Springs PD retirement badge on a T-stop, have your dispatch contact CSPD to verify the holder. The biggest issue is there is no number on the badge. It was issued by the CSPD Officer's Association. If the holder does not have a valid retirement ID card, chances are it is an impersonation. Thanks for your help.

    The badge would look similar to this:

    If I saw that, I would have my doubts about whether it was a real police badge, or something distributed to friends and family members.

        I would STRONGLY suggest that your brother report this to the locals so they can enter it into NCIC and that a national-wide annoucement goes out....

        I did that when my truck got the window busted out a few years ago back in MO and my Badge/ID were taken (along with about 50 bucks in change that was in a plastic cup in the cup holder).....

        (9) weeks later, the turds were seen flashing it in town and they were duely reported.........Knowing the vehicle in question that they were driving didn't belong to a local LEO.....some of my buddies were able to return it to me once they tossed the little bastards in jail for all kinds of offenses.........and yes....they broke it off in their asses.....

          Why?

          With the exception of the banner wording at the top, it is a copy of a regular CSPD badge.

                        Because it says "Police Protective Assn," which is the name of a union. Unions don't have law-enforcement authority.

                            So why should I think it is the badge of a police officer or retired police officer?

                              You , a trained reserve officer.............probably not.

                              Joe Citizen wouldn't know the difference.

                              It is an exact copy of the CSPD badge with a different banner...............Instead of a rank it has the association banner.

                              99.9% of the population would think it was legit.


                              Also most officers on here would honor it as a retired badge ----especially if they had creds
