Chambers Co. to place 'In God We Trust' on patrol cars

CHAMBERS COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - Soon, if a Chambers County deputy requests it, the words "In God We Trust" will be on placed on the back of their patrol vehicle.

Sgt. Jeff Hinkle started the movement, saying he prays often during his shift asking for God's protection

Sgt. Hinkle says the decals were donated, at no cost to taxpayers, and with Sheriff Sid Lockhart's full support.

"Well, in 1955, it was placed on all coins and currency and in 56 it was adopted as the motto of the United States, so we figure if it's good enough to be the motto of our country, it's good enough for our Patrol Cars," Hinke said.

Chauncy Ware states, "I don't have a problem, but this is just trying to provoke."

Scott McKellar says, "Unbelievers are now on notice authorized agents of state-sponsored violence regard them as a lesser breed, not included in 'We."

Sgt. Hinkle says while "In God We Trust" means everything to him, he says everyone is treated fairly, regardless of faith.

"That never comes up in a traffic stop or in direct contact with a member of the public, there is no reason that would make us treat anybody differently."
