Cave City police add 'In God We Trust' to police vehicles

CAVE CITY, AR (KAIT) -

The Cave City Police Department has new decals on their vehicles and they have a lot of meaning behind them.

The new decals were designed to better suit all the vehicles and save the department some money. 

Multiple people at the police department spent time deciding on what exactly the decals would look like.

The main part of the decal includes the word police with a single blue stripe down the middle, representing all police officers banded together in blue.

Also on the side is a tribute to former Sargent Jeff Richardson, who was killed in 1993 in a car wreck.

On the back of the cars is a little school pride with the caveman, and finally the quote "In God We Trust" 

Police Chief Nathan Stephens said he first saw the quote on the Stone County Police Department's vehicles and decided it was time to put it on theirs.

"And if there has ever been a time where the police departments need to trust in God I believe it is right now," Stephens said. "Of course there are all these news stories about Ferguson and Baltimore and I have personally been in a firefight and when you come out of one of those you know you're trusting in God."

Stephens said he has spoken with other police chiefs around Sharp County who are considering putting the quote on their cars as well. 

Chief Stephens said that the overall feedback from the community has been great.

He said people appreciate the inspiration and school spirit that is displayed.
