Why do county Sheriffs in the United States wear four star rank?
- BruceLv 72 months ago
Each department determines what insignia they will wear. Not all wear four stars. I've seen one star, and I've seen a ring of 5 stars.
The purpose of insignia is to show who is in charge, so the sheriff will wear a higher ranked insignia than the staff under him.

Sheriff IS their rank. In some counties, but NOT most, they may were 4 stars, but no one in the Sheriff's department of any county where I have ever lived wears stars as rank insignia.
