Guess What This Cop Just Put On His Car (Video)

When a police officer leaves his or her home they are never 100 percent sure if they will return. Some officers only rely on one thing to protect them and make sure they return home safe: God.

That’s why some police departments in the country are outfitting their patrol cars with phrases that honor the monotheistic deity like, “God Bless America” and “In God We Trust,” according to WHNT News 19.

"I know that our number one priority is to serve and protect the citizens of our community," Lexington, Alabama Police Chief Augie Hendershot said. "But, I also want people to realize that I'm driving in that car and I just don't rely on just certain things to protect me."

Plastering “God Bless America” was one of his first orders of business when he took office in 2001.

"We've been on accidents where people thought they were dying in a car and asked us to pray with them,” Hendershot told WHNT News 19. “Those are things that are a part of our day-to-day lives and we just want people to know we're there."

Not everyone, however, believes taxpayer funded/government-owned police cars should don religious statements, including groups like the National Freedom from Religion Foundation.

"I'm not trying to push religion on anybody,” Hendershot said. “We just want people to know that we're proud of our country."
