A display of memorabilia looking back at the rich history of the Piqua Police Department is set up at the station. The display depicts historical photos, patches, and badges from the past 150 years. The display also contains reminders of the somber side of police work, including photos of Piqua officers who lost their lives in the line of duty, Detective Bob Taylor, Patrolman Jan Mulder II, and Lt. Noah Studebaker.


The badge, and uniform accoutrements, that belonged to the first Piqua Chief of Police, Frank Gehle (1869-1939).


The commemorative badges currently worn by Piqua police officers celebrate 150 years of service and sacrifice. The badges were purchased through a generous donation from the Miami County Foundation.
