The Peterborough Lakefield Police Service is de-amalgamating at the end of 2014, and police have begun the tedious process on changing its name.

An image of the new Peterborough patch has been loaded in the gallery... have a look here 

 

The Peterborough Coat of Arms is framed by leaves rising up from a Trillium, a representation of the Ontario provincial flower and ensigned by St. Edward's Royal Crown.  The Royal Crown symbolizes the administration of Crown's justice while the leaves and Trillium represent Canada and Ontario respectively.  The green shield represents the 'champs' (French for 'fields') as well as the forests in the area that were explored by Samuel de Champlain in 1615.  The swords represent British soldiers who were granted lands in the Peterborough region after serving in the Napoleonic Wars and in the War of 1812.  The white and blue wavy lines represent the Otonabe River that runs through Peterborough and the many other lakes and rivers in the region.
