[APD patch. Unofficial APD patch that later became official patch with gold lettering and gold trim]
Photograph of an unofficial APD patch that later became official. Gold was ordered by mistake. The background is dark blue with gold outlining. "Arlington" is written in gold at the top and "Police" is in gold at the bottom. In the center of the patch Texas is in red with a gold star indicating Arlington and a gold circle indicating the metroplex. There are radio signals in light blue/silver branching from the star.
