Queensland Police Museum

In 1907, Police Commissioner W.G. Cahill and the Deputy Government Architect designed the Queensland Police Station Badge. The design was similar to the uniform Cap Badge. In 1911, 300 cast iron badges, each weighing 17 pounds (7 kgs) and costing 4 shillings and 10 pence were manufactured for the Police Department by Harvey & Son, Globe Iron Works, Brisbane and distributed as identification badges to every Police Station in the state. In 1958, there was a need for an improved station identification sign and, over the next decade, the old cast-iron badges were replaced with illuminated signs which showed "POLICE" in black letters on a white background.
