In 2010 the Ticonderoga Police Department developed a new patch for our uniform. We selected 3 images to display on this patch:
1. Fort Ticonderoga - Fort Ticonderoga, formerly Fort Carillon, is a large 18th-century fort built at a narrows near the south end of Lake Champlain. It was constructed by the French between 1754 and 1757 during the French and Indian War. It was of strategic importance during the 18th-century colonial conflicts between Great Britain and France, and again to a lesser extent during the American Revolutionary War. The department chose an image of Fort Ticonderoga as a centerpiece to show pride in the strong connection to the town's rich history.
2. Moses Circle - Born in Ticonderoga, Horace Augustus Moses became wealthy building and acquiring a number of paper mills that he combined to form the Strathmore Paper Company. As his wealth grew, he made a series of substantial donations to many Ticonderoga projects, among which were the Valley View Cemetery Chapel, the Liberty Monument, the Moses-Ludington Hospital, the Community Building, and the Hancock House; with the last of these, he accomplished an early lifetime ambition— to establish a museum with a library that would make Ticonderoga a focal point for public interest in the region's history. It is only appropriate that the traffic circle bearing his name be proudly displayed upon the uniforms of the Police officers serving the community.
3. Covered Bridge in Bicentennial Park - This steel stringer bridge was covered in 1994 by the local Elks Club and the US Army. Bicentennial park is one of the many beautifully maintained recreational areas in the Ticonderoga. Although the covered bridge is only one of the striking features of that park, it represents the community's pride in its history and aesthetics. Bicentennial Park remains a focal point for outdoor public gatherings and celebrations. We chose this image to represent our dedication to the citizens of Ticonderoga in our effort to maintain a high standard of vigilence to ensure a superior quality of life for all citizens and visitors.
