LYNWOOD POLICE PATCH
In the mid 1960's, the first Lynwood Chief of Police Casimir Linkewicz, met with one of his officers, Peter DeMaio, who later became Chief when Chief Linkewicz retired. They sat Down to discuss a need to develop a logo for the Lynwood Police Department. As you observe the patch they designed, you will see two lions. They were chosen because they represent courage, bravery and leadership. The lions are positioned in balance across from each other. That positioning reflects the balance police officers must use between justice and mercy. the star represents authority. This logo has been in use ever since, worn proudly by the officers of the Lynwood Police Departments
