MIAMI – The Miami Beach Police Department received new NFL Super Bowl LIV badges on Tuesday.
The department tweeted a photo of the new gold and blue badge with the logo of the Super Bowl, which will be held Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
Assistant Chief Paul Acosta wrote: “Each badge is purchased by the officer out of their own pocket.”
About 100 officers ordered the $80 NFL-certified badges and paid $20 for shipping, according to Officer Ernesto Rodriguez, a spokesman for the department. The badges also come in silver.
Capt. Steven Feldman wore his new commemorative badge with pride on Tuesday during an event with members of the hospitality industry. The Super Bowl Experience interactive theme park will be held from Jan. 25 to Feb. 1 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Dr., in South Beach.
