Norwegian Customs Social club patch - old style
"Narkotika seksjonen - Oslo politikammer" is not a Customs patch, but a social Police patch. All Norwegian police officers wear the same patch, which has a left and a right arm version. This (these) patch(es) are worn eby all units in the Norwegian Police Service, even by SWAT and K-9. "Oslo politikammer" is in English "Oslo Police District" (where I work). Oslo is Norway's capital, by the way. Narkotikaseksjonen is the drug enforcement agency of Oslo PD. But it has a national responsibility, and assist the other 53 police districts in Norway, and co-operate closely with the Customs. The patch is not approved for use on uniform, and has never been on a uniform.
