Symbols are all around us. They represent something, evoke emotions of pride and honor, and help us identify with a message or a brand. 

For the deputies of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the badge is our symbol. We wear it on our chests, out front and over our hearts. 

HCSO began 170 years ago this year. To commemorate those decades of duty to the public, Sheriff David Gee allocated money to create an anniversary badge. A team of deputies designed it, SymbolArts of Utah made it, and every law enforcement and detention deputy proudly wears it. 

For $18 each, the badges help us tell a story that began so many years ago, a story that is relived and retold in our new History Center, which opens to the public on May 5 in Ybor City. We know the public appreciates our heritage and our commitment to serve and protect – and remember.

On March 18, 2016, we said goodbye to a fallen hero. Hillsborough County Sheriff's Deputy John R. Kotfila Jr. was killed in a crash with a wrong-way driver on March 12, 2016. Deputy Kotfila's colleagues, family, friends and the public gathered at St. Timothy Catholic Church to pay respects to this dedicated public servant. On behalf of the Kotfila family and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Sheriff David Gee extends his gratitude and appreciation to all of those who sent flowers, prayers, cards, emails, food and in-kind donations.
