It is illegal to impersonate a police officer.But here at VIVIPINS, we have patches for law enforcement or holiday clothing.It's not illegal to sell such a patch, but it depends on what you do with it after you buy it.
Obtaining an authentic federal badge can be difficult, but it is possible. Federal laws dictate the legality of owning these pieces and some current law enforcements agencies frown on their trade as well - for example it's illegal to own a US government-issued shield unless you've got full rights with expired or never activated paperwork; however if your purchase comes from someone who obtained them after legally retiring (like most police officers), then there’s nothing stopping anyone!
In some states, it’s illegal for an officer to sell their badge. In New York and Illinois, active duty officers aren't allowed to do so either unless they get permission from the agency that names them on record first! The laws vary depending upon which state you live in but as long as a person doesn't try impersonating another cop – or have plans of doing so- then he/she should be able to own any current patches handed out by local law enforcement agencies without issue. Texas law currently prohibits the buying, selling and trading of current Texas Ranger badges. If you have an interest in collecting police and fire badges, Colorado is the place for it. The Denver Police Department says that there are no laws against this type of activity! Some departments will give out commemorative or honorary Badges to their retired employees as well; these can sometimes be sold if they're not too busy with work again (we hope).
