Romans 13: 1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong.
What are we to make of this during such times of distrust of govenment?
An interesting read on the misuse of this passage: LINK "But here is the rub: Romans 13 has absolutely nothing to do with one's relationship to the government, whether the Roman Empire in the first century or any government today."
So why the original question? Well I found it on this Christian Police Association Site Link
