All the sexy elite commando/Delta/ and the likes have them. Sooo, you can't be podunk out-in-the-woods-that's-a-mighty-fine-sheep-you-have police department and not have all the fashible toys. Have you ever noticed the strong fashion trends in various police depts? One gets a new type of roof lights, then another gets them. SUVs get popular, then every depts needs 4 or 5. The replacement of revolvers with autos. The SWAT team mania. Now they all want to have their own NBC units. Police depts with a platoon size population, yet the podunk chief has full general stars. In a word, police are vain, almost homo in their desires to keep up with the "fellas".

They have brought such dishonor and ridicule to their own uniforms that they are trying to salvage their self-image by wrapping themselves in those of others.
The multiple rows of self-awarded enameled *ribbons* for *Medals of Valor* worn above or below the badge, particularly in the East, is another sign of their fixation.

"Police depts with a platoon size population, yet the podunk chief has full general stars."
This is not universally true. The chief in a nearby Oregon town has four officers (including himself) and wears only a bird colonel insignia.
