The Wall Township, New Jersey, Police Department patch, in the shape of a shield, features the state seal in the center. A helmet and horse’s head crest represent New Jersey’s independence as a state and its status as one of the first. The woman on the left holding a staff is Liberty, representing freedom; on the right is Ceres, the Roman goddess of grain, holding a cornucopia filled with fruits and vegetables produced locally. Three plows on the shield symbolize New Jersey’s agricultural tradition. The state’s motto, “Liberty and Prosperity,” is written on a scroll, along with the year New Jersey became a state — 1776.
