    Sunset Point Alberta

    Back in the early 1980's I was a Special Constable at the Summer Village of Seba Beach. The Summer Village of Silver Sands Special Constable and I used to meet up with the Summer Village of Alberta Beach Special Constable who also patrolled Sunset Point, as they are adjoining. I remember him mentioning that Sunset Point had a village constable at some point in the 1970's but I can't confirm any patches. The Alberta Beach Museum http://albertabeachmuseum.ca/ might be able to shed some light on the mystery. Just a little history......these were the patches we had back then:
  3. I use to have the book he sent me a signed copy years ago but not sure where it may be packed away. He was a member of our club for many years.
  4. Lenny was my grandfather. I seen a copy of his book for sale on Amazon. Hope that helps you out a little.

    I think that the badge may be much newer than that. I got a blue patch that looks similar in the mid 1990s from the lead postal inspector for western Ontario in London in the mid 1990s. Scott Boa Ingersoll, Ontario

    Subdued Patches

    I get my subdued patches (and most of my patches) directly from the police chiefs. That way, I can be sure the patch is authentic, and not one of the pathetic fakes. Along with the patches, I also collect "patch histories" with them, which is why I keep all emails from the various chiefs and unit commanders. On occasion, I also find out about fakes. For example, Chief of Police Glenn Lickers, of the Six Nations Police Service in Ontario, told me via email, that the subdued green version of their patch is a FAKE. It was never authorized by him. He has been chief since they were first formed. There were rumours that the subdued green patches were ordered by their K9 Unit, but never picked up. According to Chief Lickers, this is FALSE.

    I was able to find a much newer version, probably from this century, with the current CP logo on it. link to the newer version, photo. https://www.pinterest.ch/pin/363806476125743017 The old one probably dates from before 1970, given the style of the crown. JimB.

    2019 Calgary Show Photos

    Thanks very much to everyone who came out yesterday and supported the first Calgary Police Collectors Show hosted by the International Police Association (IPA) Calgary Region. Alex Brann and his IPA team did a great job hosting the event – and it was sure nice to see so many folks from all parts of Alberta travel some distance to enjoy a fun day of adding to collections. The turnout was impressive – lots of tables book were booked and a there was a steady flow of walk-in collectors. This is a sure sign that the hobby is strong in Alberta and changing a date at the last minute will not stop police collectors on a mission! The next Alberta show will be hosted by the IPA Edmonton Region on Saturday May 2nd, and we hope to see everyone there. Reminders will come out closer to the date.

    2019 Ottawa Show

    I just got back from attending the 2019 National Police Collectors Show, in Texas. While there were some Canadian patches, I did not see any Canadian cap badges. However, I did have the pleasure of meeting three Canadian collectors/vendors who were a wealth of information and, of note, highly recommended the upcoming Ottawa, Police Memorial Collectors Show on 28th of September.

    Unknown Cap Badge

    Thanks for your constructive feedback. I was hoping it may have been Canadian, but agree with your assessment...Probably south of the boarder! 😞

    Unknown Cap Badge

    A generic hat badge like this is hard to pin down to a specific department. Although for me personally, I have not seen one with Police on the bottom panel like that used by a Canadian Department. I stashed to be corrected but that’s my 2 cents worth.

    Unknown Cap Badge

    Any idea of the origin of this cap badge.....Canadian?
