LONDON, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky sheriff says he is adding decals that say “In God We Trust” to all marked patrol cars.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root said in a statement on Tuesday that he is paying for the patriotic decals with his own money. He says the move is a response to recent violence against law enforcement officers around the nation.

Sheriff’s spokesman Gilbert Acciardo said Root spent $150 on the decals, which will be placed on the department’s 27 marked cruisers.

Root said the decal is “a symbol of moral values in Kentucky and Laurel County.”
