O'FALLON, Mo. (KMOV.com) - The City of O'Fallon, Mo. is looking at a revamp of their police patches and patrol car logos. 

The city is building a new Justice Department set to open in less than a year and with that they wanted a new look. 

"We developed a look we believe is contemporary and attractive, yet distinctive to a new era for the O'Fallon Police Department," said Chief Roy Joachimstaler in a release.

The patrol car decal features a thin blue line that represents fallen officers. The chief said the decal looks better on black cars as opposed to their current white Explorers. 

"If approved, we could phase the new cars into the fleet. It should take about three (3) years to have the patrol cars changed over. It may take a little longer to replace the SRO and supervisor vehicles which, because of their use, last much longer than our normal patrol vehicles," explained the Chief in a memo to city council members. 

The department said there would  be an initial fee for the set up of the decals and patches but wouldn't be higher than what they currently pay. 

It will be up for a discussion at Thursday night's city council work session
