COP HUMOUR AUSTRALIA
Have you looked at the Cop Humour Australia page. Great site for the light side of policing. Also has a Facebook link.
The latest information on the page is the introduction of the velcro Thin Blue Line patches –
Show your allegiance to the “Thin Blue Line” (whether you’re in the Emergency Services or not!) with these classic Velcro-backed patches for wearing on tac-vests, jackets, kit bags – anywhere you can think of!
These badges are worn by Police Officers around the world to signify their part in the “Thin Blue Line“.
It is generally agreed that the badges represent good and evil in the world – with the only thing standing between them is the “Thin Blue Line” of Law Enforcement.
Cop Humour Australia is proud to support WA Police Legacy Inc and for every patch sold we are donating 20% to WA Police Legacy Inc – so show your allegiance AND support a Police Charity at the same time.
