PA town adds ‘In God We Trust’ emblem to police cruisers

Jeannette, Pennsylvania Mayor Curtis Antoniak wants the city’s police vehicles to send a message, one that sets the tone for the community.

Antoniak recently led the charge to put new decals on five of the city’s marked police cruisers that read “In God We Trust,” a move inspired by emblems he saw on police vehicles in other departments, he said.

“It is our country’s motto,” Antoniak told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I’m very proud of our country.”

The city council unanimously approved the idea last week and a local sign company, Fejes Signs, is now working on the design, which is expected to be reflective. Antoniak told the Tribune-Review he’ll review the design before it’s finalized.

Police Chief Shannon Binda forwarded comment to Antoniak, who shrugged off those who might criticize the new emblems.

“I feel it’s appropriate,” he said. “Some people don’t, but I do.”

City Clerk Michelle Langdon told the Tribune-Review the design is “going to be rather small, round emblem” but officials “haven’t gotten a proof yet.”
