    “I don’t know where the original historic badge is. I haven’t seen it myself,” said Brea’s historian Officer Celmer. The image of the nostalgic badge has been used in various departmental printing such as their annual report (shown in the bottom photo.)

      Everyone in town is getting geared up for our centennial year in 2017 including Brea Police Officers, who be sporting a full size constable shield badge. In the place of CAL will be the City of Brea seal. 1917 will be on the left side and 2017 on the right, marking 100 years, along with a rank and ID number on the bottom.

        The Brea PD's centennial badge will surely be a special one as its style will be similar to the Deputy Constable Brea Township Badge back in the day.
