'We're hoping to encourage the men and women that wear this badge to do the very best they can, and to serve the citizens of the community and this state to the very best of their ability” (Sheriff Hancock)

Although it is a distinct change compared to our current badge, the five point star is not a new style or concept for the office. Upon conception in 1905 until 1987 Crisp County Sheriff’s Office wore a five point star. In 1987, the badge was changed to the six point star.
