Police making custom medals for line of duty shootings
July 22, 2016 8:38 AM   Subscribe

My google is failing me - I'm trying to find the name for and documentation of police officers getting custom memorabilia for their on duty kills.

I believe that I stumbled across the article on metafilter - but I searched the posts and couldn't find it. There was a cop who was hero worshiped for having like 26 confirmed kills and I believe the medals they were making themselves were being called some kind of old victory thing. Possibly roman? Maybe WWII related?

Best answer: Could it have been a challenge coin?

Response by poster: Just in case anyone is interested here is the metafilter thread I was thinking of: Meet-the-most-decorated-detective-in-NYPD-history.
