Issaquah’s finest need a fresh patch design — and the police department has asked residents to redo the almost three-decade-old design.
The patches adorn the upper arms of all police uniforms to identify Issaquah police. The department adopted the current design more than 25 years ago.
Anyone can submit a design for consideration, including children. Submit designs by Sept. 24. The final design will be announced in October.
Need some inspiration? Artists should review patches from other police departments. Check out a display of more than 200 patches on display in the Issaquah City Hall lobby, 130 E. Sunset Way.

“Our department is seeking a new, fresh design that clearly represents Issaquah’s unique qualities,” Police Chief Paul Ayers said in a news release. “And who better to ask for ideas than the community we serve?”
