WARNING and NEWS UPDATE:
Because of a few, is this a sad
and dangerous time for bona fide, Australian Police Historians and Historical Collectors!
* Apparently, there are now, fake/"prototype", CURRENT STYLE, WA Police "Detective", NT Police "Detective"
and NSWPF "Highway Patrol", ID badges.
* Black or "subdued" CURRENT style Police badges are not known to be issued.
* Be aware of obviously illegal, Queen's Crown, COMPOL and Christmas Island junk status, fakes;
the "emu" and "roo" are bald (have no feathering), fake COMPOL KC badges with
"flat" (not bulging) crowns , obsolete "National Crime Authority" badges and NTP "Penny" aka "Two Bob" badges".
* Be aware of some new, "crappy looking" ACT, Norfolk Island,
APS, COMPOL and Customs "Border Protection" bullion badges, not only do they look amateurish, some of these
badges never even existed. Same with some patches.
STAMP OUT UNAUTHORISED FAKES!
The unauthorised manufacturing of any type of insignia using the word: "POLICE", (no
matter how old it looks) is illegal.
Selling these unauthorised, junk status, "fakes" as genuine, can be considered "FRAUD".
If you copy any images from this web site and make "fake" badges, I WILL know. For any
"fraudsters" out there who don't understand what a Copyright © image is, look
