Nashville Metropolitan Police Department

Custom Police Badge Commemorating New Headquarters Facility

​During the 2015-16 budget process, the Metropolitan Council and Mayor approved funding for a new headquarters for the MNPD. After careful and deliberate site selection, Messer Construction was contracted to build the 110,000-square-foot headquarters facility at 600 Murfreesboro Road. Ground was broken in October 2016 and the facility completed in January 2019.​ 

​Ground was broken in October 2016 and the facility completed in January 2019. The grand opening ceremony was February 28, 2019 at 10:00 am. 

​In association with the planned celebrations, and in commemoration of the outstanding work being performed daily by the men and women of this police department, the Chief of Police has authorized the creation of a special commemorative badge, which was designed and created by V.H. Blackinton.​


​We have been in business since 1914 and have always used Blackinton for our badge needs.  First and most importantly the sales staff.. timely and professional.  Secondly is customer service, they have always been the friendliest of any vendor I have worked with.  And finally the quality of the products has always been impeccable, I have never had to return an item sold to one of my customers..."
