I want to take this opportunity to inform the great citizens of Hunt County that I have made the decision to alter the decals on our patrol vehicles. This change is a simple one in the design but the most important of all, since we have added “In God We Trust” to our patrol vehicles.
I realize that this may not be a popular decision in this day and time of “political correctness” but perhaps being politically correct is what has happened in this country.
As a Country we have moved away from our basic principles of what we once stood for and that was trusting in God. If you question you can prove it to yourself by simply talking out any denomination of U.S. currency out of your pocket and looking at it.
As Sheriff of Hunt County I made the decision to put “In God We Trust” on our vehicles for a very simple reason, our men and women who serve our County know that each and every day they put the uniform on and report to duty could be their last and it is “In God we Trust” to watch over us on duty and to keep us safe and if it is God’s will that we make the ultimate sacrifice in service to our community we trust in God to watch over our families.
