LPD introduces new shoulder patch design
The Littleton Police Department (LPD) is updating its shoulder patch design. The previous patch was based on the Colorado state seal, used by several departments in the area. The new LPD patch has a modern, updated look that is representative of some of the many unique landmarks in and around Littleton.
With Littleton sitting at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, it is a gateway to many outdoor activities, as represented by the sunshine and mountains in the background, and the sandstone formations of nearby Roxborough State Park on the left side of the patch. Running through the center of the patch, the South Platte River flows through the heart of the city. The two buildings, modeled after the historic Littleton Municipal Courthouse (formerly the Arapahoe County Courthouse and county seat) in the center and the patch, and the Carnegie Library building off to the right side, give a nod to Littleton’s 160-year history of agriculture and industry. Interestingly, the Carnegie Library built in 1917, was designated as an historic landmark in 1973 and housed the Littleton Police Department until 1977. The “1890” at the bottom of the patch represents the year in which Littleton incorporated as a city.
