LOGAN COUNTY (KFSM) – The Logan County Sheriff’s Office announced on Saturday (June 6) that it would be changing uniforms for deputies to save money and present a “less militant” appearance.

Over the next few weeks, the office is transitioning from their current uniform to one that consists of an oxford shirt (white for day shift and black for night shift) and Levis/Wranglers jeans (or khakis).

Current uniforms for the law enforcement agency cost $150, but the new uniforms will cost less than $60, according to the sheriff’s office.

Sheriff Boyd Hicks said, “I want to keep a uniform and professional look while getting the biggest bang for our taxpayer dollars!”

The Logan County Jail food bill has also been cut “substantially” since Jan. 1, officials said. Some estimates have the food bill cut in half.
