    Hello Sunshine Requests.

     

    So far we have received 329 new badges and we currently have 19 on order as of 6/23/20.

     

    The cost per badge is $100, but we placed an order for 268 badges and the cost for those was $90 due to the quantity ordered.

     

    Sheriff Miller used Drug Forfeiture funds to pay for the badges.

     

    The set-up/Die Cast Fee for the badges was $2,350.

     

    Our new patches cost $2,380. We waited to order the new patches until our existing supply had been used, so this cost was accounted for in
    our FY20 budget.

     

    Aaron
