Poplar Bluff police add "God Bless America" decals to vehicles

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KAIT) - The Poplar Bluff Police Department is the most recent Region 8 law enforcement group to add a new sticker to their patrol vehicles.

They've added decals that say "God Bless America".

They posted a photo on Facebook Wednesday evening thanking 4M Signs for donating the decals.

Some residents commented on the post commending the department for adding the stickers.

Others said it is a violation of the separation of church and state.

This comes after the Freedom from Religion Foundation has threatened legal action against other law enforcement agencies in Region 8 who have added "In God We Trust" decals to their vehicles.

That Wisconsin-based group has threatened to sue the Cave City Police Department.

The City of Osceola also put the national motto on all of its city-owned vehicles.
