South Bend Police Department Revives Patch Coloring Contest for Children


The South Bend Police Department (SBPD) is delighted to announce the return of its popular Patch Coloring Contest for children in the community. This annual event, which had been on hiatus for several years, provides a fun and engaging opportunity for young residents to interact with the police department while expressing their creativity.

Contest Details

The contest, open to children aged 5 to 12, will feature a unique coloring page designed by SBPD officers. The coloring page showcases the department's official patch, which proudly symbolizes their commitment to serving and protecting the South Bend community.

Children are encouraged to use their imaginations and artistic skills to bring the patch to life with vibrant colors and intricate details. Submissions will be judged based on creativity, originality, and attention to detail.

Prizes and Recognition

The SBPD has lined up exciting prizes for the winners in each age group. The grand prize winners will receive a special recognition from the police chief and gift cards to local businesses. All participating children will receive a certificate of appreciation and a small token of gratitude from the department.

Benefits of the Contest

The Patch Coloring Contest serves as a bridge between the SBPD and the younger members of the community. It provides a positive and interactive experience that fosters a sense of trust and understanding between law enforcement and children.
