Heres the best photo I can get of the badge, but i'll see if I can find a better one. From what I can see, it says "Detective", "Miami-Metro" "Police". No idea on where to buy them, sorry.

When Debra is promoted:

I think Season 1, if you look closely, her badge is different:

And sample of badges I've found:

The only thing I haven't found yet is the center seal.

I think they tried to get it the state seal close to the Miami-Dade badges.

I looked up "Miami-Dade badge" and found this:

I'm an officer in NC but I also have my grandfathers badge from FL and it has the same medallion in the middle as Debs. FL must not use the state seal. I never realized that wasn't their seal.

I don't have a picture of his badge access able to me right this second but it looks like this:

The trouble is, Miami Metro P.D. is a fictional police department devised strictly for the novels and television series; it doesn't exist in the real world; it's closest real-world couterparts are the Miami Police Department (whose jurisdiction lies within the Miami city limits) and the Miami-Dade Police Department (whose jurisdiction lies within Dade County). As such, the badges, I.D. laminates, case file folders, etc., were custom made by the prop and art departments, so any replicase of those props would have to be custom made as well.

As for cliponbadges, I don't know about their other products but their Dexter I.D.s are pretty inaccurate compared to the screen-used props.

The badges used on the show have two different center sections (around the seal.) One has a scalloped edge and the other is a smooth round circle. Both versions appear to be from a Blackington Badge Company model B749 in a nickel finish. The center seal seems to be one widely used by replica badge companies, but I can't seem to pin down a source for just the seal or an item number.

I may have a source that is making these from scratch.... I'll of course let everyone know what happens....

Working on a Debra Morgan badge, ID and case replica. Here's what I have so far. Need to use a different top banner and font, the seal is not available and will need to be custom done.

Can anyone out there hand paint them on a 1" disk?
