The City of Titusville, Florida / Police / NewsHundreds Show up to Support Local Law EnforcementSunday, July 17, 2016
Hundreds of citizens from the North Brevard Community showed up at a rally to support their local law enforcement officers Sunday night. The event, sponsored by the "The Church is One in North Brevard Pastor's Prayer Group", was an opportunity for the community to come together and appreciate the strong, longstanding partnership between law enforcement in North Brevard and its citizens.
Several local pastors lead the crowd in prayer for the community, focusing on everyone continuing to work together during the recent violent events that have unfolded in our Country.
"Words cannot express how much this turnout means to the men and woman of our department", said Titusville Police Chief John Lau while praising the outstanding teamwork in the North Brevard Community. "The support we get from our Citizens, City Council, and our City Manager is second to none" added Lau.
The crowd, estimated to be at several hundred, wore t-shirts with the Titusville Police and Brevard Sheriff Patches on them. Members of the Titusville Fire & Emergency Services were also present to show support at the event.
The show of support to local law enforcement was in stark contrast to some of the anti-police protests that have been covered on national news outlets recently.
Citizens shake hands with law enforcement members and sign banners supporting local law enforcement Sunday.
