“Police” bra

This bra was presented to a female police officer upon her promotion to the rank of Sergeant with the Saint Paul Police Department in 1971 in Minnesota. The roomy size 36DD pink lace Maidenform bra has sergeant stripes tacked to each cup, a shield-shaped pin above the right cup reading “I HAVE SERVED / ST. PAUL SCHOOL POLICE,” and a patch tacked to the back closure of the bra reading “POLICE TRAFFIC”.
