BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County Sheriff's Office will be wearing newly designed badges to commemorate the Camp Fire.

As we approach the one-year anniversary of the Camp Fire, members of the Butte County Sheriff’s Office will be wearing newly designed badges to commemorate that unprecedented and tragic event.

The badges feature a center seal depicting the Honey Run Covered Bridge. The bridge, an iconic Butte County structure built in 1887, was destroyed during the fire. There is now a vigorous effort underway to rebuild it.

"This makes the bridge a fitting symbol to show our respect for all that was lost and express our continuing commitment to helping our community rise from the ashes," the sheriff's office announced in a press release.

The seal also includes the phrases “Camp Fire 2018” and “Butte Strong,” which signifies the county's resiliency in the aftermath of the disaster.

BCSO members collaborated on the design of the commemorative badge. The badge was then produced by the Ed Jones Co., of Berkeley, California, which has been hand-making law enforcement and fire badges since 1898, the sheriff's office said.

The owners and staff of the Ed Jones Co. understood the significance of this project and took extraordinary effort to handcraft a badge worthy of the extraordinary and dedicated service BCSO members provided during the Camp Fire and the months that followed.

BCSO members who want a commemorative badge purchased the badges with their own money, so there was no additional cost to the Sheriff’s Office.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office members are authorized to wear the badges for one year and then during the month of November in subsequent years.
