Among the often seen items in the photos are flags, calendars and photographs of family. Plants and stuffed animals are also frequently seen. Less frequent, but nonetheless present, are portraits of a country’s leading political figures, uniforms, guns and other representations of rank and authority. One Texas sheriff’s office had a framed photograph of actor — and ultimate he‑man — John Wayne. Another photo shows a worker sitting in the middle of towering stacks of disorganized papers and files.
