The police badge mourning band is used by law enforcement to commemorate police officers that have fallen in the line of duty. Memorial Bands are supposed to be worn from the time that a police officer is killed in the line of duty until the end of the funeral procession for the fallen officer. These mourning bands are made from elasticized polyester, and is designed to be worn across the middle of shield badges or from 11 o'clock to 5 o'clock on star cop badges. Bands of mourning have been worn historically in many cultures, and the police have only recently adopted this practice of putting bands over their office badge.
