Wisconsin Police Department Removes Prayer Plaque Following Atheist Complaint

    A police department in Wisconsin has removed a prayer plaque from its walls following receipt of a complaint from a prominent professing atheist organization.

    The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) recently sent a letter to the Onalaska Police Department after being informed by a local resident—who it left anonymous—that a “Police Officer’s Prayer” plaque had been displayed on the wall in a public area of the police station.

    “Lord, I ask you to be with me in a very special way as I face the challenges that I must face each day,” it reads in part. “Please give to me compassion for the innocent I see. Help me to protect and serve those who depend upon me.”
