New Decals for Patrol Vehicles


Press Release – 08-13-15


New Decals for Sheriff’s Vehicles

Sheriff Franklin is proud to announce the addition of the national motto, “In God We Trust”, to our patrol vehicles. On 08-13-15, we picked up the first two patrol vehicles, 2015 Dodge Ram pickups, with the national motto on the tailgate. This decision is in keeping with the recent approval of the Missouri Sheriff’s Association during their annual training seminar in Branson, MO. Several other law enforcement agencies throughout the state have recently added the motto to their patrol vehicles.

“The addition of the national motto to our vehicles reaffirms our belief that our success in protecting the public depends on help from God. For those who would take issue with the new decals, I would invite them to work a radio car for a year and then tell me God had not protected them from the evil we face every day.” – Sheriff Dwight Franklin.
