GREGG COUNTY, Texas (KLTV) - The Gregg County Sheriff’s Office was founded 150 years ago and the department is sporting new badges to commemorate the anniversary.

The new design is modeled after an “Old West” design of the traditional “lawman’s shield,” which marshals often wore. Centered in the shield is the Gregg County Sheriff’s Office star.

Chief Deputy Craig Harrington talks about how his officers feel about wearing the design, and the fact that they will get to keep them when they’re retired.
