The background of the University of Nevada, Reno, Police Service’s patch represents Truckee Meadows, a high desert valley at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The state seal, in the center, depicts a partial sunrise behind a mountain range and includes symbols representing the state’s natural resources and heritage of mining and agriculture. The bottom of the patch features the year of the university’s founding.
