Our St. Patrick's Irish Police Flag shirt pays tribute to the history and traditions of Irish American Law Enforcement. Police departments in the United States were comprised largely of Irish American immigrants. Policing in the early days of our country was not a job the average person wanted to do so it was left to those who needed the work and had the guts to do it. Irish American's welcomed the tradition and it became a way of life. Many of law enforcement's traditions are based around Irish influence.
