The patch of the Herington, Kansas, Police Department features the city’s slogan, “Where the rails meet the trails,” which references its proximity to the Santa Fe and Chisolm Trails and how they intersect with the various rail lines of the area’s early days. At the bottom, the year 1887 references the city’s founding. A gold steer head symbolizes ranching and agriculture, as well as the cattle drives and cattle trails, in the area. Crossed pistols represent the Wild West and frontier of pioneer Kansas. The train engine recalls the city’s history as a railroad town.
