The Sarasota Police Department has debuted a new patch affixed with Sarasota’s new city seal. The City Commission approved the new city seal in November 2022.

As the department updates its branding, residents will gradually see SPD officers wearing the new patch on their sleeves. 

Like the original seal, which was designed in 1902, the new seal pays tribute to the city's waterfront and natural attributes, and includes Sarasota's 120-year-old motto, "May Sarasota Prosper."

The new seal is a collaboration between Sarasota-based creative agency DreamLarge and city resident Rachel Manzano, a city seal contest design participant whose concept was selected by the City Commission.
