SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — SDG&E employees received new uniforms Monday. 

The power company is rolling them out in an attempt to prevent con-artists from pretending to be employees. 

The old uniforms had a simple patch that couple easily be copied. 

The new uniforms will have the SDG&E logo embroidered on either the chest or the sleeve. 

The goal is to enhance safety for the company's more than 1,800 employees and help customers easily identify San Diego Gas and Electric employees.
