Welcome to Justin's Police Collection


My name is Justin and I am police memorabilia collector from Minnesota. I have been officially collecting police memorabilia since January of 2006. I currently have a collection of around 5000 patches, over 350 badges, and 40 Uniforms.

I specialize my collecting to the state of Minnesota, in which I have over 1800 patches, about 230 badges, and 27 uniforms and always wanting to add more. I am always looking to add to my collection any law enforcement related item from Minnesota. I am also looking for any information relating Minnesota patch histories. If you have anything that may be of interest to me, please let me know, no matter how small it may be. The purpose of this website will help me display my collection of law enforcement memorabilia from all over the world. I will also use this website to trade patches and keep in contact with fellow collectors.

Trading Policy

I am always interested in a trade, but for the time being I am going to be a little more selective. I recently purchased a few collections, and quite a few of my wants were filled. If you have something for trade you think I might be interested in, or if I have something that you are interested in, do not hesitate to email me. I follow the, if you initiate the trade first, you send first, if I initiate the trade, I send first rule. If I have traded with you in the past, I usually just send the patches whenever and do not worry about any rules. I will I am not too picky on ' new-for-new or used-for-used, just as long as we are both happy in the end.

Donation Policy

Donations to my collection are always accepted and welcomed. Donations do not just include physical items, but can be photos, both in digital and print form and stories. Maintaining this website and my collection is expensive and any donation of police memorabilia to help keep my collection moving forward and passing the history of policing to all of those who view my website is greatly appreciated. Cash donations, although appreciated, will not be accepted. This website is my way of displaying my collection for other collectors, historians officers, both active and retired as well as their family members to view and possibly bring back memories of when these items would have been worn.

Picture Use Policy

Pictures may be used under the written permission by myself for any photos used on any written documentation or webpage. While this is only a hobby, it does take a lot of work to get the pictures to where they are. I only ask that I am emailed and given the credit for the image as the copyright holder and I will send a full-sized image for your use. If this is continually abused, my website may be locked down and no image will be able to viewed unless registered. So please do not ruin it for everyone. Thank you.
