What we wear tells a story:

Chest Patch: (Left)

The patch is modeled after the original FWPD Badge. The "E" is the Learning for life Explorer logo. On the top of the patch is an Eagle, to represent courage.

It was originally Silver and Black, but was changed to a subdued color in 2004 when we changed the uniform colors.


Shoulder Patch: (Right)

The patch is modeled after the FWPD patch. The Scales are for the Scales of Justice and the crossed swords represent Civil War General Grant's visit to the area during his command. Our street "Military Road" is named as a popular Military transport route during that era.

The original patch was a Federal Way Police patch with an "Explorer" rocker sewn underneath.
