Capitol Police (Department of General Services)
Capitol Police (DGS) This is the Capitol Police patch (for Florida) when it was still housed under Florida's Department of General Services. One of the actions that then-Governor Jeb Bush took after the events of 9/11/2001, was to move the Capitol Police under the auspices of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (see next patch). The patch also seems to pre-date the merger of the Florida Departments of Administration and General Services, which now forms the Department of Management Services.

This patch was one of quite a few that was found in Tallahassee Regional Operations Center's garage, and given to me. More regarding the history of the Capitol Police can be found here.
