L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Spending $300,000 To Go ‘All Brass’
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is spending $300,000 to change the color of their belt buckles and other metal pieces of gear from silver to gold.
The sheriff says the change is important to maintaining a professional look for deputies on the job and that the coordinated gold-colored buckles, belt snaps, baton rings and key holders would “finish off the uniform” and better convey to a suspect that a deputy is in control.
Some deputies including union officials are not happy with the change citing budget and personnel issues.
