    NCIS Badge

    Ok, I know there are threads out here that give conflicting info on who carries this badge, but here it is. Who does actually carry the below badge?http://badges.net On the G R Davis Badge site, badges.net, they have the Silver NCIS "Agent" Badge.

    I actually carried that badge a long time ago. When I joined NCIS, I was not scheduled to go to FLETC for another three months. While waiting to go, they put me to work, carrying that badge. After graduation from FLETC/NCIS basic course, I was issued the gold one with "Special Agent". Thanks for the memory.

    I can tell you with 100% certainty, that the Agents who carry the Silver NCIS "Agent" badge are Reserve NCIS Agents. Although all of the "regular" (full time) NCIS Agents are civilian 1811's, NCIS has 5 reserve units around the country. There are approximately 125 - 150 military Reserve Agents in these NCIS reserve units. I know, I was one for about 17 years and I've got my silver NCIS Agent badge displayed proudly in my retired shadow box.

    Also, unless it has changed recently, I believe the handful of 1810 Investigators (and possibly some other non-1811 personnel) that NCIS employs also carry the silver "agent" badge, vice the gold "special agent" one. If I remember correctly it is also the approved badge for new agents who have not been through the academy, as cbsnbc mentioned, although I have known new NCIS agents who were issued regular badges right away.

    NCIS Badges

    Thank you for the information. From the very knowledgable information from the above, I finally have the final explanation on this.

    Actually, I was told the 1810 investigators were issued a silver badge that said "Investigator". One of my old bosses still has hers, and showed it to me one day (after she found out I collected badges). She showed me something that said there were three NCIS badges (Special Agent, Agent, & Investigator). She was shocked when I showed her a 4th... the NCIS millennium commemorative badge.
