I just got awarded the Citizen's Patrol badge... but I don't think I flagged anything recently.

Anyone know why that might happen?

Because you flagged something for moderator attention, probably in the past.

2011-02-09: Flagging for moderator attention now counts for the Citizen Patrol badge. This change applies retroactively.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Leguri, it's a one time badge I think. \$\endgroup\$ – Pat Ludwig Feb 10 '11 at 15:30
  • \$\begingroup\$ How does this badge work? I've flagged one post on RPG and two on Stack Overflow but haven't received the badge on either. \$\endgroup\$ – Richard Young Aug 6 '16 at 18:47
