    I also think that if your husband or wife is a leo and is killed or dies in the line of duty or not, then the badge should stay with family. Either the husband or wife, their children if they have any and if they want to keep it...

    Badges don't sell for $10, not even 'Replik' badges. The public needs to be educated that the badge is only part of an Officers ID, it needs to have the proper Department Issued paper or plastic ID. I collect badges both current and obsolete but I am a retired LEO myself and my badges are locked up and protected. If I sell or trade or even buy a badge I make sure that I am dealing with a real LEO. Civilians should not be allowed to possess them, even as collectibles. I do not have an objection to retired LEOs having them as we have our own retired badge.

    glad they recovered this badge, too many of them out there with people, even on this site, looking for them, NOW, did i read that these new badges have internal numbers making recovery if lost or stolen easier? Like a locator chip? which means that the badge and its holder can be located via satellite? like they use on pet locators and on cars? which means the movements of police officers holding these badges movements can be tracked 24/7? I dont think i like that if this is true, somebody tell me this isnt so.
