Larry Groover, of T&T Signs of Waynesville, left, and Sheriff’s Jack Whisenant present the truck that brought the sheriff’s office – and the long-time local business – nationwide attention recently when it was named top design for a law enforcement vehicle in the eastern half of the nation for departments with up to 25 deputies.
Judges in Law and Order Magazine said that the vehicle colors and design where “done right” and “classy”.
According to the article, Whisenant came up with the “star” design and Groover brought it to life on the vehicle working with the sheriff on several drafts to create the right look for the vehicle.
Groover said adapting the design to the vehicle took several hours but was worth it. T&T Signs has gotten requests from other law enforcement offices from as far away as Macon since the SUV hit the streets earlier this year.
