Every day, police officers put their lives on the line to keep us safe. These brave men and women are constantly put in harms way while arresting criminal thugs.

It’s important we pray to God to keep our police safe. Which is why the Houston (Alabama) County Sheriff Donald Valenza printed on every patrol car a quote from Matthew 5:6. It says “Blessed are the peacemakers.”

Sheriff Donald Valenza, who ordered the new decals, said the quote is meant to represent what the department stands for.

“I’ve always had religious belief, and I feel like that’s kept me alive,” Valenza said. “We’ve used that (quote) with (the special response team) for 15 years. It symbolizes the Houston County Sheriff’s Office.”

Valenza said the decals cost about $1.60 a piece.

“We have strong beliefs,” he said.

Here is a close up of what it looks like:


This is fantastic! We have a nation of laws based on the Christian tradition, and it’s important to respect the 1st Amendment rights of police officers. They need God’s protection every day!
