The Walla Walla County, Washington, Sheriff’s Office patch is based on the county seal. Virtue, liberty, and independence are values selected by local officials. Horses, a plow, and wheat being harvested recognize agriculture as the county’s primary industry. Wheat is the largest product, and it is shown being transported by a cargo ship. A bald eagle symbolizes America and freedom. The county name, also a Nez Percé word for running water, comes from the Walla Walla tribe.
