The UCPD Patch

The Upper Chichester Township Police Department "patch" symbolizes the history of the township by incorporating its founding date of "1682" with pictorial graphics of the past.  The "Cherry Blossom" with two bright red cherries is indicative of a time when Upper Chichester Township was known for large plantations of cherry trees.  These cherries were shipped throughout the region by early settlers whose livelihood depended upon this crop.  A blight in 1920 destroyed nearly all the cherry trees in the township.

The "Arrowhead" is symbolic of the early settlers -- the Indians. Indian tribes, such as the Shawnee, Delaware and Lenape, have been identified as being the most notable. The "Indian Figurehead" appears on a dark blue background which displays the boundry configurations of the township; this colorful figurehead being a true tribute and representation of the ancestry of Upper Chichester Township.
