Most badge companies will not produce a badge without authorization from the agency.  You should talk to those in charge of your agency to see if your authorized to have your badge reproduced

As a general rule Florida agencies use Blackinton badges, your dept. may or may not allow you to have a 2nd badge. I would check with them 1st. If you can order a 2nd badge start with your local uniform store, that is how most Blackinton badges are ordered. If another company makes your badge it will take a letter from the Chief for them to make it. It is easy to find out the  badge maker,  turn the badge over and you will find a name stamped in the badge (that's the hallmark or makers mark). On some there may not be a hallmark, or there maybe numbers or names (generally refers to the finish on the front of the badge). Each company uses different names. You will have to check with the uniform store or get a badge catalog(s). Hope that helps.

You can probably order one through Galls if you don't have a local uniform store, my preference is to use a local uniform store if possible.
