The patch of the Henrico County, Virginia, Sheriff’s Office honors local heritage. Pocahontas symbolizes a prominent figure in early American history. The tobacco leaves depict John Rolfe’s (Pocahontas’ husband) new strain of the plant, which gave the New World its first cash crop and brought prosperity to Henrico and Virginia. The Indian corn on the seal represents the nurturing soil of the local area and the gift of corn to early settlers.
