1994: Muleshoe Police Chief Julian Dominguez talked about his hobby with Clovis News Journal reporter David Molina: Dominguez had about 400 shoulder patches collected from law enforcement agencies “from Abilene to Zimbabwe,” Molina wrote.

Dominguez said he began collecting the patches after joining the Muleshoe Police Department as a rookie cop in 1979.

His collection included the first patch worn by Muleshoe police, which was created in 1961.

Dominguez said most of his patches came from requests he sent by mail, but said he also carries extra Muleshoe patches anytime he traveled in hopes of exchanging them with local law officers.
