Until the mid 1964 Northern Territory Police wore the Australian Coat of Arms on their cap badges then it was replaced with the kangaroo insignia.

The main feature of the silver plated hat and cap badge is a kangaroo, symbolising the Australian Outback, this is situated beneath the St Edwards Crown, the crown used at coronations, symbolising Commonwealth links. Either side of the kangaroo is surrounded by a laurel wreath featuring the Territory's floral emblem, the Sturt Desert Rose. At the centre of the badge is a blue scroll depicting the words ‘Northern Territory’, beneath the kangaroo is a larger blue scroll with the word ‘Police’ in capital letters.
