Patrol car Logo Redesigned for Morganton Public Safety

That's not a trick your eyes are playing, the newest Morganton Public Safety patrol cars have a new design, including the word "police" across the front and rear ends. Maj. Ronnie Rector said the new design, for the first time in his memory, features the word "police" because visitors from out of town and minorities are unfamiliar with Public Safety as a police force. Over the next few weeks, the department will be rolling out eight new vehicles: four Dodge Chargers and four Ford Crown Victorias. Rector said the cars are part of the 2008-2009 budget. The new design gives the logo a contemporary look, Rector said. The last update to the logo was more than 10 years ago. Morganton
