Close-up view of a Los Angeles Police Department badge with an eagle emblem at the top. Below that, over a background of sun rays emanating from the center, are 3 banners reading "Captain" and "Los Angeles" and "Police" framing the city seal encircled by an enameled ring with the words "City of Los Angeles, Founded 1781." At the base are 2 5-pointed stars, and the whole is framed by a border of laurel leaves; photographed on speckled background, possibly granite.
