Goals of the Los Alamitos POA
50th Anniversary Badge and Coin
In honor of a half decade of service to the community of Los Alamitos, a special edition Badge and Challenge Coin was designed. Many Los Alamitos Police Officers will be wearing this badge throughout 2012, not only to commemorate the history and tradition of the department, but to honor the strong partnership with the community which has developed since its inception.
