The Quogue Village, New York, Police Department, founded in 1922, serves a community in the Hamptons on the east end of Long Island. Its patch features an eagle, which represents the agency’s courage and integrity. Stalks of wheat are reminiscent of the many farms that once dotted the local landscape. An anchor honors the memory of the schooner Nahum Chapin, which sank off the coast of Quogue in 1897. This anchor, the only item salvaged from the wreck, now is on display in front of the Quogue Library.
