In spite of what he described as a warm reception from the community, the Prescott, Wis., police chief’s effort to place “In God we trust” stickers on squad cars has come to an abrupt end.
Chief Gary Krutke said on his personal Facebook page that he was asked to remove the stickers just days after they went on.
“Today I was told that I may have to remove these words from OUR squad cars because the BAD guys might be offended by these words ‘In God we trust,’ ” Krutke wrote in a post last month.
Mayor Dave Hovel said he was the one who asked Krutke to remove the stickers — but not because of any personal concerns or complaints from the community.
