Symbolism of the Simpsonville Police Department Patch
We are proud to present the uniform patch worn by the Simpsonville Police Department. The current patch was created in September of 2012 upon the hiring of Keith P. Grounsell as Chief of Police. Chief Grounsell and our diligent officers chose local landmarks and state symbols to incorporate into the Simpsonville Police Patch.
The building depicted in the patch is the Shealy building, located at the intersection of Main St. and Curtis St., which housed the first emergency phone lines in the city.
The clock tower is the center point of Main Street and known landmark for Simpsonville. Please take notice that the hands of the clock read 09:11 as a tribute to all of the fallen heroes and the families affected by the attacks on September 11, 2001.
The American flag is depicted with a blue line for the symbol of the Law Enforcement brotherhood. Also visible on the patch is the state of SC logo (i.e. the crescent moon and palmetto tree), which is proudly displayed on the SC state flag.
The Simpsonville Police Department is represented by more than 50 sworn law enforcement officers and civilian support staff. The city of Simpsonville is located in the upstate of South Carolina within Greenville County.
