"In God We Trust" On Police Vehicles Draws Complaints

Like dozens of other police agencies around the United State, the police department of Childress, Texas have recently added the motto "In God We Trust" to their vehicles, but they have drawn complaints from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.  From the Chicago Tribune:
A police department in a rural Texas Bible Belt community has placed large "In God We Trust" decals on its patrol vehicles in response to recent violence against law enforcement officers, but a watchdog group says the decals amount to an illegal government endorsement of religion.
The decision by police this month to unveil the phrase in Childress, an agricultural community of some 6,100 people at the southern edge of the Texas Panhandle, follows a similar move by dozens of other police agencies elsewhere in the country.
