An email sent to CMPD staff on June 27 outlines the 2012 Democractic National Convention Commemorative Badges which are being offered to CMPD employees, both officers and civilian employees.
According to the email the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Benevolent Fund is offering the badges in celebration of the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
The email continues:
The cost of the badge is $40. Proceeds from sales support the Benevolent Fund’s efforts, which always have a direct impact on CMPD employees and their families.
These commemorative badges, which are two-tone with red, white and blue accent colors, will be available for a limited time beginning in early July. You can reserve yours now by visiting the CMPD Portal page and clicking the COP Shop link. Click on the DNC Commemorative Badge link to access the instructions to purchase your badge.
The badge will be made available to CMPD employees (sworn and non-sworn), as well as, those who come to Charlotte to assist us during the Democratic National Convention.
