CERT Challenge Coin
CERT or The Correctional Emergency Response Team is a voluntary unit made up of ninety (90) correctional officers whose mission is to neutralize disturbances, handle critical incidents, respond to incidents that require additional manpower, equipment, and specialized skillsets, and enhance teamwork outside the standard training and resources of line correctional officers.
The CERT Team of The Rhode Island Department of Correction is also utilized to assist with other contingencies which may arise at any of our facilities and to assist outside law enforcement agencies, when necessary. The members are specially equipped and trained and use only necessary and reasonable force to maintain good order and ensure sound security protocols. CERT consists of five specialized units; Chemical Munitions Unit (CMU), Less Lethal Team, Breaching Team, Weapons, and Marksman Observers.
We had the opportunity to build their custom challenge coin. The design concept was pretty simple: To have their insignia put on one side, and an image of crossed rifles and commander’s rank insignia on the other. Other than that, they didn’t request any additional aesthetic elements or patterns such as ones you usually see on a common challenge coin.
We used a brass-colored metal for the base material of the coin, and the colors used were only black for the base, and the colors of their insignia. It’s one brazen and straightforward challenge coin.
