Betrayed Trust
Posted by John Uden (+213) 5 years ago
I must vent. In 1988 when I retired from the police dept. I left my large foreign police badge and uniform hat collection with the dept. to continue displaying it for the public to see. If they ever ceased displaying the collection it was to be returned to me. Well some items have been returned but many foreign police and some badges are now missing. It is extremely difficult for me to accept but it would appear that one or more officers have taken some of this collection for their own use or benefit. My trust has truly been betrayed.

John, that is sad to hear. Hope things get returned to you. Really shows that nothing is safe anymore, no matter where it is on display.

Sorry to hear this, John. It sounds like an interesting collection and I hope the missing items are located and returned to you.

Makes me think of the Seattle Metropolitan Police Museum. They have a large collection of arm patches from police departments around the Pacific Northwest including some from Montana.
