Orrville Police unveil new Patch

2017 OPD PatchMAIN

In 2016 Sgt. Andrew Dalessandro was tasked with designing a new patch for the Orrville police department. Dalessandro spent the better part of 2016 getting ideas and suggestions from members of the department.

By early 2017, the design was finalized and officers were authorized to begin wearing the new patch on their uniforms. In March, the old gold and blue patch was permanently retired.


Based on old department photographs, it appears that the “state seal” patch had been around since the mid-50’s.
