The patch of the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training incorporates several attributes that denote the agency’s statewide mission. The two stars amidst the agency’s name represent its two primary functions: establishing and enforcing minimum standards and providing training for public safety officers and staff within the state. The Oregon state seal in the center signifies the agency’s cabinet-level role, and the badge format reflects the history and tradition of the agency and those it serves. Each of the colors depicted are significant—gold represents integrity, blue conveys honor, red symbolizes courage, and white embodies peace and sincerity.
