The patch of the South Euclid, Ohio, Police Department resembles a shield, which provides defense for officers. Within the shield, olive branches depict honor; two shades of blue represent night-and-day protection; an armored fist denotes the power of the law; a sword signifies justice, while lightning bolts allude to rapid response; wings signify peace; and seven stars represent the officers assigned each shift. An encircling yellow border suggests the rising sun and the beginning of new ideals for the department.
