MCSO Gets A Brand New Look

Deputies and Detention officers with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will have a new look starting April of 2017. The men and women of the Sheriff’s Office will be transitioning from the traditional tan and blue uniform to a standardized navy blue utility uniform for enforcement functions and a standardized grey-blue uniform for detention functions. Paying tribute to former Montgomery County Sheriff Tommy Gage, elements of the traditional uniform will be maintained within the agencies’ Honor Guard function.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is making this change for several reasons. Most significant is that the new high-quality uniforms are cost efficient, both in the near and long term. Few law enforcement agencies, in this modern era, wear special-order tan uniforms. Additional costs and added delivery time were incurred by having red epaulets and pant stripes sewn on. These new uniforms are durable, functional, readily available, and an important part of an ongoing effort to promote the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office as team and community oriented.

The new uniforms also boast a new agency patch featuring a simplified design that will modernize its look. This new patch features a traditional five-point Texas star under “SHERIFF" in capital letters. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office set out to design an emblem that our public could easily identify while showing pride in our community and rich history – indicating the County’s founding date of 1837. This patch accomplishes those goals.

At about three sets of uniforms per employee, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office stands to save approximately $36,000 with this change. Not to mention a significant amount of time gained in not having to wait weeks for a special-order uniform to be delivered. These new uniforms, while sharp-looking, are simply plug-and-play with readily available stock.

Residents can also expect to see a sleek, definitive, new patrol vehicle graphics design. This new graphics package is being applied only on new vehicles entering the fleet, at a savings of $62 per vehicle. However, the old graphics package will stay on current patrol vehicles nearing the end of their services life, as not to incur any unnecessary costs.

“This is an important and exciting change for the men and women of our agency and our public," said Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson. "It is my desire to build a Sheriff’s Office that people are proud to work for and proud to be served by. That pride starts with first impressions and we are looking forward to making a great one.”

Did anyone think that it gets over 100 degrees in the Summer? And we are putting our Officers in dark blue?

@Abeas05

Does it make it a lot cooler than baby blue?

The grey blue looks a bit janitorial (no offence meant, so please no PC lecture for crying out loud!). I'd ditch that. The darker shade always evokes more respect.

I do like the darker look. I imagine that what makes them really hot in the summer time are the bullet proof vests that they have to wear.

They look like Houston Police, now. One could always tell the sheriff's office from the police. Now, they all look the same. Looks like they got rid of the cowboy hats, too.

They look fantastic and stand proud, we are proud of your service.
Just a thought: make sure you burn the old uniforms, don't want them to fall into wrong hands.
