UNION COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE
DAVID H. TAYLOR
Union County, S.C. Sheriff David Taylor said he intends to be a sheriff for all of Union County and he wanted a symbol to reflect this.
That’s why as new patrol cars replace the old ones in the office fleet, they will sport a new color scheme of gold, maroon and blue.
In 2007, the county faced the issue of having 3 of the local High Schools to consolidate into one High School, which meant the closing of 2 local schools in the county. This was very hard and disappointing for many residents in the county. The Sheriff decided to use to 3 main colors of all 3 schools in the vehicle design as a way to show unity within the entire county. Gold is one of the school colors for Union County High. Maroon represents the school color of Lockhart High and blue for Jonesville High.
Renntech Graphic designer Chad Gault and Sheriff Taylor put together the new stripe design.”
Taylor said he told Gault he wanted the new design to reflect unity and he showed Gault the badge style he intended to use.
“He worked with that style of badge and he came up with the design on the vehicle,” Gault said. “Using the colors will help show that the sheriff ’s office means to unify the county and protect the whole county with the services of the sheriff ’s office.”
Sheriff Taylor said vehicles with the new design also will have the Crime Stoppers number on them.
