At Ozbadge© we have been proud to have listened to our customers needs, then collaborated with history, to design, manufacture and supply unique insignia to Police Departments and Museums for just over 10 years. Our clients and customers have included, in some small way, most major Australian Police Forces.

So how secure is your ID badge design and its use?
Can you find it readily available on ebay, right now?
Can everyone else?
And maybe, there it is, ready to go, in a convenient wallet? But where to?

You need more than a piece of metal, that looks like your logo. These days, you need specialist badge makers whose design, motto, thinking and service goes beyond delivering a bucket full of “school” or “club” badges with little or no accountability. And so, maybe you know us by name because we are secure, committed and a tight team of high security players. More importantly, we will never try and force that old, garage out the back full of old machines mentality and old machinery thinking on you. We can manufacture virtually in any plant in the world with the latest computerised, cad-cam computers or by hand, using engraved, steel dies. In 2021, having options gives you, the ultimate security product. ie.; Police Positive +

The Ozbadge Security Watch Team ©.

The Ozbadge Global Security Watch team works for you.

For corporations it may simply be called: “brand protection”, but for law enforcement agencies it may actually be “life protection”, as well.
That’s why Ozbadge is a member of the eBay’ VERO team, aka Verified Rights Owners; which is operated by Ebay. Why?

Because we believe that protecting intellectual property rights and maintaining a safe environment for Police, is a very serious matter. As such, certain types of items, such as modern looking or current Police badges are prohibited from sale in most States in Australia; in fact they can be illegal just to possess.

To provide further support, the Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) program offers intellectual property owners a way to report a listing or sale and items they believe infringe on their rights.

Please see the full guidelines and details on the VeRO program, and the rules we have in place to help protect intellectual property rights.

Remember, most modern replicas and counterfeit items can be JUST AS ILLEGAL as the real thing in the wrong hands. Many of our current, sensitive badge designs are not even shown here, due to confidentiality.

For Secure, Department enquires email us: For everything else and cool, authorised collectibles, please see our historical collectibles or email us for the LATEST. Remember,

Ozbadge DOES NOT condone or support the actions or activities of the P.I.C.A.A. aka the Police Insignia Collectors Association of Australia, Inc, (there seems to be no known ABN to facilitate it as an “Incorporated” entity ) or any approval to use the word “police” in the name.

New South Wales Police Force
is here.
