A word about the R-25 logo.
that's Theodore Roosevelt on the horse. He was the only US president
who was a cop. From 1895 to 1901 he rose from being NYPD Police
Commissioner to the 26th president.He lived and worked in the east and
west. One of his dearest friends was William (Buckey) O"Neill, former
mayor of Prescott, AZ, and sheriff of Yavapai County.TR was the only US
president to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional
Medal Honor.President Roosevelt epitomizes the American
spirit, and no better symbol can be found.
BTW, the Theodore Roosevelt Trust still gives an annual Police Officer of the Year award.
