We're pumped, amped and excited to offer the Limited Edition Metropolitan Fire Dept. (predecessor to the FDNY) 150th Commemorative Anniversary badge. This commemorative, collector, badge was designed by Steven Scher and is manufactured by Smith & Warren.
The Metropolitan Fire Department, the first professional fire department in NYC, existed for five years and then became the Fire Dept. of the City of New York (FDNY).The badge is based on the design of the original MFD badge. It incorporates both the seal of New York State, which mandated the creation of the MFD, and the NYC Seal. This badge is die struck from solid brass and the Blue Panels are filled with hard fired cloisonné enamel. It's finished with 24K gold electroplate and coated with a hard, clear protectant.
A presentation case is included along with the badge.

EPoliceSupply is located on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. I thought you all might enjoy reading about the Motorcycle Parade held this past weekend to honor First Responders.
'The rumble of 50 motorcycles Saturday on Higgins Crowell Road announced the start of the third annual Cape Cod and Islands First Responder Appreciation Freedom Ride.
The 50-mile ride, held to honor police officers, firefighters, members of the armed forces and Good Samaritan, began at noon at the Yarmouth police station. The ride went to Chatham and back to South Yarmouth, led by local police officers on motorcycles with civilians on their bikes following behind.
Bourne patrol Officer Jared MacDonald, 44, who is on medical leave after being shot in the back in February during a police ambush in Bourne, was a guest of honor and rode in a police car during the ride.
Before the ride, all the civilian motorcycles were lined up in twos and threes in the police station parking lot.
“What is important is that this ride is a visible and loud symbol of support for all first responders who are constantly on duty to provide routine and emergency services to all,” Yarmouth police chief Frank Frederickson said to the crowd before the race began. “Motorcycles and motorcycle rides have always been a symbol of freedom, strength, pride and courage. They are uniquely American. Today the rumble of your bikes and your collective presence will show the region and the nation your support of first responders.”"

WHY DO WE REQUIRE CREDENTIALS?
We require credentials for all Law Enforcement Badges with a Title such as Officer or Detective. We've had numerous requests to make the badges above with the Title 'DETECTIVE' on the top panel. The requests are all due to the enormous popularity of the TV Show True Detective. Unfortunately, because these are active "real" Law Enforcement Badges, we cannot make the badges for anyone who is not a Bona Fide member of the Louisiana State Police. Credentials are required to be on file with us before we can process an order to Smith & Warren or Blackinton. It's a layer of protection for those who serve us so honorably and so well.
The exception to this rule are Small Badges like the S506A. The dimensions of the regulation sized badge are 2 1/2" X 2.1". The dimensions of the small badge are 1.63" X 1.63", much smaller.
