Some of you may be aware of a nonprofit called “Operation Safety 91.” For those who are not, here’s who they are:
Operation Safety 91 describes itself as a “Christian faith-based organization whose goal is to promote honor and appreciation of Responders and what they do and to make available to them God’s Covenant of Protection, Psalm 91.” According to their website, their mission is “to instill across America an appreciation and commitment to honor our current and retired 1st Responders: Firefighters & EMS Personnel, Police & Law Enforcement, and Military. Secondly, our mission is to provide free-of-charge, a pocket-size Psalm 91 Card – which has countless proven testimonies – to 1st Responders and their Chaplains who request them.”
In addition to pocket sized Psalm 91 cards – which apparently Operation Safety thinks protect police and firemen from harm better than actual safety equipment – the organization also provides “In God We Trust” decals for law enforcement vehicles.
Earlier today, Operation Safety 91 claimed that they are providing the San Antonio Police Department in Texas with “In God We Trust” decals for their vehicles.
It’s nearly unheard of for large police departments to put “In God We Trust” decals on their cruisers, so we asked the San Antonio Police Department to confirm Operation Safety’s claim. Romana Lopez, Public Information Officer for the San Antonio PD, wrote back to us saying, “We checked and we are not.”
Either Operation Safety is boasting about things that aren’t happening (which is my guess) or the San Antonio Police are lying to us about their plans to display the motto. Either way, we have them both on record making opposite claims.
