Even if you're not a customer that needs to order badges for your police or fire department, this place is still just plain cool. Ed Jones Co. has been making high-quality, authoritative looking badges, buckles, seals and awards since 1898. Swing by the showroom to see some of the company's work. Ed Jones is family owned and operated, and the company prides itself on customer service. Unfortunately for individuals—but fortunately for society as a whole—the company doesn't sell badges to you unless you have all the proper documentation to prove that you need one.
