OUT WITH THE OLD – IN WITH THE NEW

BURLINGTON POLICE DEPARTMENT LOGO REBRAND

The Burlington Police Department patch was redesigned in 2016, featuring a silhouette of buildings prominent in the City of Burlington, set against a backdrop of Camel’s Hump; Vermont’s third highest peak, also located in Chittenden County.

The limited palette of black, white and two shades of blue reflect a modern aesthetic and pay homage to the uniform worn by the Police Officers in the city they have served with honor, dignity and pride since 1865.
