IPA Logo History

IPA logoThe IPA logo incorporates one of the most recognized legal symbols, Lady Justice. Lady Justice is blindfolded signifying impartiality. The IPA logo depicts the scales of justice with a badge symbolizing the SJPD on one side and an image symbolizing the people of San Jose on the other. In creating this logo, the IPA envisioned a trademark that would convey the message that it would be the weight of the evidence that would determine the outcome of a complaint. The virtues represented by Lady Justice: fairness, impartiality, without corruption, prejudice, or favor are virtues central to the mission of the IPA office and are the guiding principals by which the IPA seeks to operate.

Teresa Guerrero-Daley, former Independent Police Auditor, designed this logo.
