A Virginia sheriff’s office has added the words “In God We Trust” to the back of their patrol cars. 

The Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office announced that they have added the national motto to their Tazewell patrol cars. 

“Our department feels very strongly about having ‘In God We Trust’ on our vehicles,” Sheriff Brian Hieatt told WSLS. “We know there is nothing we can do for our community without the guidance of our Lord.”

Sheriff Hieatt said that the department recently held a concealed weapons class with 87 participants - their largest class to date. The department was able to hold the class at East River Church in Bluefield thanks to Pastor Boyd’s donation of the space.

According to Hieatt, the department holds weekly Bible Study meetings for officers as well.

“We want the public to know that we have strong Christian men and women serving their community,” Hieatt added.

The sheriff said that several churches in the community have donated to the department’s cause.
