Badge design is that of a shield with an eagle perched on top. The eagle has
its wings spread, head ducked down and facing to our left. The eagle's
wings sweep down below the feet.
The eagle is holding a banner in its mouth which goes up on the eagle's left wing
(the right of the image). The banner has incuse lettering of "PATROLMAN".
The shield has a center circle, which from the back looks like it was welded on.
It has a smooth texture, a small center
six-point star and lettering around the inside of the circle. From the lower
left and curving around clockwise it says "U.S. NAVAL SUPPORT ACTIVITY". Along
the bottom of the circle it says
". CANAL ZONE .".
Above the circle is a banner. The banner curves up at the center and down at either
end. However the tails of the banner tuck under and trail up.
This banner has the word "SECURITY".
Below the circle in another banner. The center of this banner curves down with
the ends up. The tails at either side tuck underneath and then trail upwards.
The banner reads "POLICE". Below this banner is a smooth area for the badge number.
It is a rounded rectange with small points coming out at the center of each of
the four sides.
The example above is badge number "106". All lettering is incuse and the banners have
smooth surfaces. The shield overall has a textured background
and a raised ridge as the edge.
