Deputy cars get a makeover

Dougherty County Sheriff's patrol cars are getting a new look.

Sheriff Kevin Sproul let a committee of his employees design the new striping and logo.

The gray and black striping matches the new uniform colors deputies started wearing this year. The logo is a six pointed star with the state of Georgia and Dougherty County written inside. This is the first design change for the cars since the late 1980-s.

Sheriff Kevin Sproul said "We are very proactive in what we do. Very progressive in our agency here. And we want the public to know that. We also want them to see our new color scheme, so they will know it is the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office."

9 Dougherty County Sheriff's Cars will get the new look soon. The rest of the 30 Sheriff's vehicles will continue to wear the old striping until they are replaced in coming years. Seized funds from criminal prosecutions pay for the new striping.
