STONE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

The Stone County Sheriff's Office has placed an order for "In God We Trust" stickers to go on all of the department’s vehicles.

According to a post on their Facebook page, the stickers were donated by members of First Baptist Church in Mountain View.

The sheriff’s department said as soon as the stickers are made, they will be put on the vehicles.

They're making this move in spite of the threat of legal action from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.  

That Wisconsin-based group has threatened to sue other Region 8 police agencies for displaying the stickers, including the Cave City Police Department.

The City of Osceola plans on putting the national motto on all of its city-owned vehicles as well.

The Dunklin County Sheriffs Office has also ordered decals for their vehicles.
