Paxton: Police can display 'In God We Trust' on patrol vehicles
from The Dallas Morning News
In an official opinion, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said law enforcement agencies displaying "In God We Trust" on their patrol cars would likely win any court battles over the issue.
" ... Displaying 'In God We Trust' on police vehicles is a passive use of a motto steeped in our nation's history that does not coerce Citizen approval or participation," Paxton wrote in his opinion. "A law enforcement department's decision to display the national motto on its vehicles is consistent with that history. Thus, a court is likely to conclude that a law enforcement department's display of 'In God We Trust' on its patrol vehicles is permissible under the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution."
