The History of the Cary Police Shoulder Patch

The patch of Cary, North Carolina Police Department was developed in 1996 by a local artist.  The state is depicted in the Center of the patch, superimposed by a clock that stands in the city’s historic downtown.  The triangle represents the area of the state where Cary is located – between Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, known as the Research Triangle Park.  The Cary Police Department is nationally accredited and is the second largest law enforcement agency in Wake County.  The Town of Cary is continually ranked one of the nation’s safest and best places to live, work, play and raise a family.
