W.F.P.D. Celebrates 125 Years of Service

The Wichita Falls Police Department celebrated 125 years of service this morning at City Hall.

Police officers celebrated this milestone by creating a special badge to wear to memorialize such a feat.

Officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department have worn various styles of badges over the years.  The badge that officers currently wear has been in place for over four decades.

Throughout 2015, officers are authorized to wear a special 125th Anniversary badge.  This badge was designed to commemorate the Department's long and illustrious history.  Inscribed on the back of the badge are the names of the W.F.P.D. officers that have been killed in the line of duty.

The new anniversary badges were purchased by the officers that wear them.
