    According to the LAPD Training officers doing the audio commentary on the Season Two DVDs, the little medallions that Reed and Malloy wear on their uniforms signify their shooting abilities. In the case of Malloy, who has a gold medallion with two bars, he is rated as an expert shot while Reed, who has a medallion with one bar, is at least a marksman. The commenting officers also explain that police officers are required to be tested on their shooting skills every two years in the LAPD.
