ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The Lee County Sheriff's Office vehicles are getting a makeover.

The decals on the office's cruisers have been redone to better reflect the community. The new color pattern includes black and red striping, the same colors used at Lee County High School. A Trojan the school's mascot has also been added to the vehicles. Sheriff Reggie Rachals said money to redo 16 cars came from drug seizures the office has made.

"The good thing about it is the money's coming from drug seized money. It's not coming out of the county's budget in any way form or fashion so that's the good part about it right there," said Rachals.

The vehicles also include the Sheriff's new web address. Sheriff Rachals said he hoped the community will use the site for safety tips and to check up on sex offenders living in their neighborhoods.
