Sheriff Brian Gootkin is hosting a contest to design the future look of the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicles. This contest is open to all Gallatin County school aged children from Kindergarten to 12th grade.  

The Sheriff’s Office is dedicated to serving our community and appreciates input from those we serve. It is this core belief that generated the idea that our children have input into the design and the look of the patrol vehicles that serve you.  

You can log onto our website at to download a picture of the Ford Police Interceptor to use as your base model for your design. This vehicle is the new police vehicle offered by Ford, that Gallatin County has purchased. 

If your school has an interest, please contact School Resource Officer, Paul Griffin at / 582-2117.  We will assign a Deputy to assist the school with the following criteria and process: 

 The winning school will be proudly displayed on our new vehicles.  All entries must be submitted to the “Patrol Vehicle Design Contest” Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, 615 South 16th Avenue, Bozeman, MT  59715 by May 12th, 2012.  

The winning design entry will be selected by members of the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Gootkin will hold a press conference to announce and introduce the winning students.
