Past friend and one of the most influential figures during Badge Frame's creation has passed.
Bill Longacre (LAPD / Det. / Ret.) Bill worked on 100's of Police Shadowboxes and will always hold a
special place in Badge Frame's history. Bill helped us with building tables and storage units that are
still used everyday. Badge Frame would not be as successful today without his help and LAPD referrals.

|Bill & Shelley Baxter you guys
are the Best.
I brought in a bunch of stuff in a box and you helped
me put them in not only a beautiful shadow box but a
whole lot of great memories. It is on the wall in my family
room and everyone that sees it says how awesome it is.
I am going to a reunion for the Costa
Mesa Police Dept. in March 2014 and I would like to take
about 20 catalogs with me and share them with my
Law Enforcement buddies.
NOTE: Bechtel was the first person to ever use
an actual helicopter part in their shadowbox.
Thanks. It arrived safe, sound and undamaged. 100% satisfaction - it looks great!!! I haven't presented it to her yet - waiting for her birthday party in July. She's absolutely going to love it. Thanks again, Eric Haaland
Bill, I presented it to my wife today on her birthday. It stunned her and it was a complete surprise.. She will cherish this for the rest of her life. Thank you very much. Eric Haaland
|"First of all, thank you soooo much for completing this for Joe and I. I know there was a time crunch and you made it work. I got the box on Friday morning. We presented to Joe on Sat the 12th in front of about 100 people at an awards dinner. Joe and the piece got a standing ovation and tears were flowing freely. I heard numerous comments about the shadow box being the best one anybody had ever seen. Several people asked about your company and I passed on your E-mail to several people and raved about you. Again, Thank you for everything. The shadow box will be in Joe's heart and his family's history for a very long time. Thank you Bill!!!!!!!!." Marc LaPlante|
First I want to thank you for the terrific work you did on Carlos Franco’s shadowbox. I know we put you on the spot with the amount of notice we gave you for the project but you definitely rose to the occasion and came through for us. I’d have to say that your shadowbox was probably one of the most impressive moments of the night. Carlos lit up like a Christmas tree when he saw that shadowbox. Your work was impeccable and every member of our department marveled at it including our current and former Chief’s of Police. More than anything though was that receiving this gift made Carlos’ night and really showed what an impressive career he has had with our department. Thank you again from all of us here at UCPD. Sincerely, Karen Gentilucci..
"On behalf of the men and women of the Cypress Police Officers Association, I would like to thank you for the design and building of Mark Parker's shadowbox. Without any design direction from us, you were able to accurately and beautifully
lay out Marks 27 plus year career of service to his country and community. We appreciate all your efforts."
Michael Wintersole - President, Cypress Police Officers Association
DAMN... that is even better than I expected. I am sure he will be very surprised as will everyone else when they see how this turned out. Best part Mark knows we are doing something with his stuff but does not know what. ....wow!
I saw your samples at the FOP conference and was very impressed...this is over the top. Thanks!!!!!!

Bill, my shadow box was delivered
today and it looks great! You guys did an
incredible job on it and it was well worth the
wait. I tried to picture what it would look like
during our initial discussions and layout but when
I finally opened the box, I was surprised – well
beyond my expectations. Brings back 31 years of
treasured memories as I look at it and send you
this email. By the way, your packing was
bulletproof – took me about 5 minutes to open the
box and get through all the inside packing. Thanks
for doing such a great job on it. John DeRohan
|Bill! It is stunning!
We will send you some pics and would love to see it on your website!
Thanks soooo much! It's perfect.

Bill -- I can't thank you and your crew enough for the awesome piece of artwork you created from the bits
and pieces of my 25 1/2 years with Mammoth Lakes PD. My career now looks way better than it actually was!
I am telling EVERYONE about your company. I hope you get some additional business, as everyone who has seen it thus far
has been mightily impressed. Please thank Sarah and anyone else who worked on the box for the hard work
and artistic vision. My family will treasure it forever, and I was honored to see it on your website. Karen
