HCSO Authorizes 200th Anniversary Commemorative Badge
Tuesday, December 3, 2019
In October of this year, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office celebrated our 200th Anniversary of service to the citizens of Hamilton County. In honor of this historic milestone, you may notice some of their personnel wearing a special, commemorative badge highlighting this significant bicentennial anniversary.
Each of these commemorative badges were authorized by the Sheriff’s Office and purchased by personnel independently to be worn until October 2020.
Sheriff Jim Hammond stated, “For 200 years the men and women of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office have provided consistent law enforcement operations throughout Hamilton County. From a bygone era of mounted deputies on horseback crisscrossing wagon trails, to the use of modern technology and state-of-the-art vehicles, our deputies continue to honor our agency’s rich history and uphold the legacy and traditions of those who proudly served before us.”
