[ARCHIVED] Pins connect veterans with veterans

Many who wear the Eugene Police uniform, also wore a different uniform prior to their police career. With a new program, you will see some Eugene Police officers wearing Veteran pins on their uniform to note their prior service and better connect with veterans they meet during calls for service.
This pin was jointly developed between Sherwood Police Department and Eugene Police Department. EPD recognizes the need to seize opportunities to identify with and serve this segment of our population as we come into contact with them. The Veteran pin doesn’t identify a specific branch affiliation to allow for a common transition to dialogue between officers and veterans. This pin has been authorized for active duty, reserve duty and honorably discharged members of the armed services. The qualified officers wear them voluntarily. ###
