TCSO Changing Shoulder Patches
The current shoulder patch used by TCSO for the past 30 years has undergone a change. Effective immediately, a new shoulder patch depicting the capital building and Mt Rainier will be phased in, replacing the stock patch that has been used for decades.
Pushing the decision by Sheriff Snaza to effect this change is the fact that the six points of the star depicted on the old shoulder patch do not represent the seven core values of TCSO. These core values are represented by the seven points of the TCSO badge; Judgment, Character, Honor, Integrity, Loyalty, Courtesy and Knowledge. Additionally, the old patch is a stock design used by other Sheriff's Offices both within the State of Washington and throughout the nation.
