Sheriff's Vehicle and Sign

The vehicle pictured above was donated to the Sheriff's Department by the First National Bank. It is marked with the new color scheme. As units are replaced, all marked units of the Sheriff's Department will also have the new colors.

Also shown in the picture is the new sign above the entrance of the Sheriff's Department and the Detention Center. The sign was recently installed, to help you locate both offices more easily.
