The Kenton Police Patch

The patch shows the two oldest buildings in the town on the historic registry. The Kenton Church which dates back to the Revolutionary War era in 1789 and the Kenton Elementary School established in 1933 which is currently the Town Hall.  In 1806 the town name was formerly changed from Grogtown to Kenton and in 1887 the Delaware General Assembly recognized Kenton as an incorporated town.  The Kenton Police Department serves at the pleasure of Mayor and Council.  The Kenton Police Department patch was designed by Hector Baez, a Delaware Corrections Officer who also designed the right arm patch (JTVCC) currently worn by Corrections Officers working at the Delaware Correctional Center in Smyrna.  The left arm Corrections Patch is the standard state-wide patch worn by all Delaware Corrections Officers.
