    I've carried this one for almost 15 years:

    It feels really thick when you first set it up. My Ed Jones flat badge is fairly thin and the wallet and badge have basically bent to each other's shapes over time and it's now pretty thin.

    I'm not badging everyone when I bust my wallet out, but creds are easy to get to when needed.

    I'm required by policy to carry a badge if I carry a gun, a policy I agree with. Around here I want something making me more identifiable if I have to break a gun out.

    I would like to have a 15 minute conversation with that guy. Just to understand the person behind the act.

    There was a Chief of a Department in the county where I work that had the dept initials, ala XXPD along with a design, tattooed on his back like a tramp stamp. As fate would have it, he had to leave LE after being convicted of a crime for a short stint in prison.

    I believe strongly in keeping things separated:

    1. Police ID, health insurance card, and driverís license together, in one slim holder, often on a neck chain.

    2. Credit cards, one or two C-notes, and an expired driverís license in another slim wallet.

    3. Additional cash, and perhaps another CC or two, in a separate thin wallet, on occasion.

    4. Badge, usually NOT carried while out and about, largely because it looked so cheap, and my official ID looked much more official, on its own. When it suited me, on rare occasions, I put the badge on its own leather holder, on a neck chain.

    Much of the time, I only carried #1 and #2, above.

    A big ďamenĒ to those who have said an official radio is a better off-the-clock badge of office, than a badge. Now, in retirement, I wish I could get a ruggedized mobile phone that looks VERY MUCH like the Motorola radio I had been issued, by the PDís radio shop.
