Bibb deputies sporting new uniforms

No dramatic wardrobe change came for Bibb County deputies when the clock struck midnight New Year’s Eve, but the force hit the streets dressed in new uniforms Monday.

Merging the midnight blue of the former Macon Police Department with the tan over khaki of the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office has spawned a gray over black combination for the consolidated department.

Deputies will be wearing gray shirts and black pants with a gray stripe.

The uniforms have been dribbling in over recent weeks and some alterations were necessary, said Lt. Randy Gonzalez, a public information officer for the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

“The sheriff didn’t want to go to the new uniforms until everybody was able to get them,” Gonzalez said.

“He didn’t want to have deputies in three different uniforms.”

In the coming weeks, old Macon police patrol cars will be equipped with new signage and logos.
