BRUNSWICK, Ga. – Police in Glynn County will soon have a new look with a new graphics design for police vehicles and new uniforms for officers.

The department began changing the look of its 18 patrol vehicles, moving away from the brown and gold color scheme to a black and white look. The new graphics design also includes the department badge. The old design featured the patch.

Officers' uniforms that had been brown and pink tan will transition to a tan shirt and green pants. There will be some overlapping time where both uniforms and car designs will be used.

Only new vehicles and those damaged or in need of new decals will receive the new graphics, police said. Uniforms will be phased in slowly, as a measure to ensure no additional costs are incurred.

"We  are  buying  uniforms  with  money  budgeted  for  that purpose, and are stripping cars with money already budgeted for that purpose," said Police Chief John Powell. "We are not asking  for  additional money  from  the  Board  of  Commissioners  or  the  citizens  of  Glynn County to accomplish this."
