MEMBER OF:
INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CHIEF'S OF POLICE (IACP)
RETIRED ARIZONA CHIEFS OF POLICE ASSOCIATION (RACPA)
NATIONAL SHERIFF'S ASSOCIATION
FBI INFRAGARD UNIT (PHOENIX AZ)
FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE
STATE OF HAWAII ORGANIZATION OF POLICE OFFICERS (SHOPO)

My name is Garvin Arrell.
        I am a retired chief of police from the Surprise, Arizona Police Department (2001, 10 years)
and a retired captain from the Honolulu, Hawaii Police Department (1990, 25 years)
and served in the U.S. Army's
Army Security Agency for three years.
   Being retired has many rewards, one of which is having the time to collect law enforcement memorabilia and to have a historical perspeotive on law enforcement agencies.

Over the past few years I sold off over 6000 patches from my collection and I now concentrate on Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona, South Pacific and state shape patches.This site displays my collection of state shape patches, which I have been told
is the largest of its kind known, containing 3345 (updated 2/17/18) patches, my Hawaii 762 updated 
1/2418 patches, Alaska 789 (updated 1/3118) patches, Arizona 1510 (updated 2/17/18) patches and South Pacific 429 (12/2017) patches collections are at the bottom of the page.

I only collect state shape law enforcement, posse, search & rescue, corrections,security, arson investigators, fire marshals, fish & game, forestry, civil defense and others related to these areas. I also collectf
Arizona ONLYstate shape fire patches.
There is a non related law enforcement section (Miscellaneous) which
is not included in the above total.
I do not activly collect this type of state shape but these were given to me.

If you have any state shape law enforcement or related agency patches
I am missing, that you are willing to part with, please
Email Garvin here and I will purchase or trade for them.  I know of
over 160 I do not have.  There is a section at the bottom of this page
with pictures of patches I am looking for. These are just ones I know of,
I am sure there are many more. I have added a site meter/counter to monitor how many visit the site since July 20, 2011. 

      I believe most all of them to be authentic, but there are some novelty and possibly
        a couple of cut outs among them. Some may look the same but there is a size, letters,
border, seal, cut, material or some difference in the patch which might not be
  readily apparent. A few are error patches. The number next to the state name is the number of patches from that state.

Enjoy looking them over, however I have watermarked them
to keep them from being reproduced. Some of the writing
on the patches is a little difficult to see with the
watermark so I am adding text to those patches.

I recently added Honolulu Police Shooting medals from 1938 - 1962, coins and medals in the Honolulu County section under Medals Page 1 & 2.

These patches have been and are displayed at law enforcement conventions and conferences.
I also have 1090 badges in my collection but have cut back on collecting these items and currently only collect Hawaii, Alaska and Arizona badges.

I also have my own badge, patch, pin and coin business and have done badges, patches, coins and pins  for a number of law enforcement and security agencies. My business name is Security & Law Enforcement Equipment (SLEE). If you need more info just Email Garvin here

NOTE:Please do not ask me to send un-watermarked copies.  This is my collection, not for sale or trade.  However if you have a patch I need please contact me to work out a sale or possible trade.  My trade list is at the bottom of the site. I only trade for state shape, Hawaii, Alaska, and Arizona patches I need for my collection. I also have access to traders from another collector friend if need be. 

I DO NOT SELL/ TRADE PATCHES FROM MY COLLECTION. I DO SELL FROM MY TRADE LIST AND PATCHES ARE $2, $3, $4. $5  UNLESS MARKED DIFFERENTLY. JUST ASK.
Thank you for looking.
