The Contra Costa Sheriff’s Office is replacing its current fleet of all-white cars with a new paint scheme sporting the traditional black-and-white look, the agency said Tuesday.
At least 80 more cars are expected to receive a makeover during the next few years, according to sheriff’s spokesman Jimmy Lee.
The new look also includes a gold seven-point Sheriff’s star, and the words “Sheriff” and “Contra Costa County” in black lettering, outlined in gold. Those decals appear on the doors. The word “Sheriff” also will be painted on the trunk of the Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptors.
The new colors “will increase the visibility of our patrol units and bring us more in line with other law enforcement agencies throughout the county,” Sheriff David Livingston said.
