LAGRANGE, GA (WTVM) – The Troup County Sheriff’s Office announced that a new decal will placed on their patrol vehicles to include the motto, “In God We Trust.”

The idea came from 1956 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a law declaring “In God We Trust” to be the nation’s official motto, and now almost 60 years later, Troup County’s Sheriff’s Office wants that motto to continue on their own patrol vehicles.

The decals were not paid with government funds, but by citizens who wanted to show their support for men and women of the Troup County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff James Woodruff would like to thank everyone who contributed to this project including, individuals, businesses and churches.
