Former Macon police cars striped as Bibb County Sheriff's cars

Bibb County Sheriff's office say it takes approximately 45 minutes to transform the old Macon police cars into Bibb County Sheriff's cars.
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Bibb county sheriff's office is continuing the process of transforming former Macon police cars to Bibb County Sheriff's cars.

The process takes about 45 minutes to stripe one of the Dodge Chargers and costs approximately $200 per car. The sheriff's office is using inmates to remove Macon Police striping from former police department cars to cut cost for county taxpayers.

Sgt. Mark Schultz says the striping is for deputies as well as residents safety.

“The public is not use to seeing macon police cars out in the unincorporated areas,” says Schultz. “So, we're having to remark them for the proper agency, which is the Bibb County Sheriff's Office. So, now all the vehicles that they see out in the county will have Bibb County Sheriff's on them."

Sgt. Schultz says all of the striping on the sheriff's cars should be completed within the next 60 days.

Three vendors are working with the sheriff's office to stripe the new cars.
