It looks like any other badge.
But the badge former sheriff John Carr Davis passed down to Sheriff John Ingram on Friday represents an island of integrity amid a sea of scandal that has plagued the office of sheriff for the past 25 years.
“I wore this badge for 11 and a half years,” Davis said. “It is untainted.”
After passing the badge to Ingram, Davis said, “You, John, be the best sheriff we’ve ever had.”
