Welcome to Wim's Police Badge and Patch Collection.


  Hi. My name is Wim and I was a "Security Law Enforcement Officer" in this country.


  My wife Käthy was a police officer and had been on the force since 1971. She had the rank of sergeant and worked for the Alien Police Department. You may wonder why she had been on the force for so long. We, in this country, have to work until we have reached the pension age. That, for the most of us, is around 66 and 4 months. I  have now retired as well. I have been on the force for 38 years.

My lovely wife Käthy has retired from the Police Force as of the 7th of January 2016. She has served 45 years.


  We live in the eastern part of Holland (Netherlands) and are about 45 km's from the German border.


  I have been collecting badges and patches for about thirty eight years now and since the internet, intensively. In the beginning one collects everything you can get hold of. At one time along the way you come to your senses and realize that you have lost count of what you have and you start to specialize. It took me quite a while to sort things out, put things to paper and later to ones own homepage.


  I would like to thank my wife Käthy for putting up with me for all the time I spend behind the computer compiling and updating my homepage.


  To Axel and Henk for the production of my banner and to Jurgen for the server space.  Hey guys - Thanks.

Selling off the whole collection.


I want to let everyone, who visits this page know, that I am selling off the collection. The collection has gotten so big that I have to scale down. If you are interested in puchasing please let me know. First come, first serve. Pay-Pal is accepted.



I wish to convey my sympathy to the people  who lost family and friends in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania on the worst day of 2001.

I pray to god that he may give you the strength to cope with the loss of your loved ones.
