Austin Chief of Police James Kulesa said he decided to go his own way in making a statement with patrol cars, instead of the popular national motto, he chose the opening of the U.S. Constitution, “We the people.” “This is what it is all about, us, the people,” he said. While “In God We Trust” is sometimes controversial, “There is no question with this, and it covers everybody… and it means the officers are part of the people.” There have been no complaints about the phrase being on the vehicles, he added.
