HODGENVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The police chief in Hodgenville says decals with the phrase “In God We Trust” will be added to patrol cars in the central Kentucky city.

Chief Marcus Jackson told WDRB-TV city officials approved the move, though reaction has been mixed since the department put an announcement on Facebook.

Chief Jackson said many people posted supportive remarks, but others were opposed to the idea.

Hodgenville Mayor Kenny Devore said he supports the move and plans to personally pay for the decals.

Chief Jackson said the five officers in his department won’t be forced to put the decal on their vehicles; they can opt out.

Larue County Judge Executive Tommy Turner said he thinks a majority of people in the community support the decals.
