The Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office would like to respond to the multitude of requests we get for uniform shoulder patches. On the average, we receive 15 to 30 patch requests per month. We are grateful that our web site generates the amount of traffic that it does, and welcome the feedback we always receive within e-mail requesting patches. It is very interesting to us to see the worldwide reach of the site. We have received requests from all over the United States and from many foreign countries.
However, due to the costs of patches and the structure of our quartermaster system, we are unable to honor patch requests as a department. The volume of mail we get regarding patches is such that we cannot respond to e-mail of this sort. We apologize for not being able to honor requests for patches, but the expense and time associated with such an endeavor is not possible.
