1*/ logo is rapidly becoming the de facto symbol of law enforcement special operations,
the 1*/ logo is steeped in heraldry:
For those who make uneducated comments about this patch, we wear !!
We are law enforcement officers and have no desire to be 1% Er's, Nor are we !!
The 1 stands for the individual officer wearing the patch.
The * is an asterisk and stands
for "Ass to risk".
The \ is the thin blue line of law enforcement.
So, it means
"You have one ass to risk for the thin blue line"
when read as a symbol.
There are several
variations of the patch,
one for fire fighters with a red line,
one for military with a green
line and so on.
I hope this clears up any misconceptions anyone may have !!!
Isn't a 1% Er patch !!!!
