Enforcement Officers, and coin collectors alike. The front of the coin displays
the WLEOA Logo, and the back side is etched with Saint Michael, "Patron saint of Law
This is how a challenge coin is used:
During World War II, and even dating back to Roman times, the
practice of carrying a specially designed unit coin became very popular because
it saved lives by becoming a means of identification.
Today, carrying the coin at "all times" and presenting it when
challenged results in a number of consequences for those who cannot produce
their coin. Such as having to pay for the coffee, soda, or other small item.
"Coin Checks" are permitted anytime and anyplace. If challenged,
you must produce your coin. If you produce your coin, the challenger must pay
for the coffee Etc. If you are unable to produce your coin, you must buy the
challenger the coffee.
In some instances, failure to respond to a challenge may result in
the loss of your coin, or you may be asked to return the coin to the issuing
agency. You make the rules before hand.
