HODGENVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Hodgenville City Council has unanimously voted to allow the words “In God We Trust” to be lettered on the town’s police cars.

WDRB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1WUcHa8) the idea came up when the five-officer department got two new cruisers recently. Police Chief Marcus Jackson said he will leave it up to the individual officers whether they want the decal on their vehicles.

Mayor Kenny Devore said he will pay for the new decals personally, so that the money won’t come from taxpayers.

Larue County Judge Executive Tommy Turner told the station he knows a lawsuit is possible. But he said in an email, “I am supportive as I think allowing ‘In God We Trust’ on our cruisers reflects the majority feeling of the community.”
