The traditionally shaped patch of the Elberton, Georgia, Police Department prominently features the city’s seal in its center. The middle depicts an outline of Elbert County, for which Elberton is the seat of government, along with a smaller outline of the state. The red and white stripes against a blue background with stars embody the patriotic sentiments of the community. At the foreground of the seal is a representation of the city’s churches, courts, and granite industry. Elberton is considered the “Granite Capital of the World,” producing more granite products annually than anywhere else.
