We receive numerous requests for our patches, from patch collectors and other law enforcement enthusiasts around the world.  The uniform patches of the New Prague Police Department are restricted.  Patches are purchased with city funds, and for security reasons, it is our policy to only issue uniform patches to authorized employees of the department.

Our uniform patch is not available to the public and is not available for purchase.

We thank you for your understanding.
