Ed and Steve: I have been wearing my badge with pride and am saddened that my department has made it a policy that this badge can only be worn during September of each year. I would like to wear it year 'round. Many citizens have asked about it and many have asked that I remove it so they could hold it in their hands, I allow this with pride.
I think this is a wonderful thing and hope it goes on forever, just like our First Responders and our Flag.
