ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Business leaders were handing out blue ribbons and placing them up and down Dawson Road as part of a campaign to show support for law enforcement.
BJ's Country Buffet is just one of many Albany businesses joining the "Back the Blue" campaign. With crime against police officers going on around the country, City Commissioner BJ Fletcher says they want police to know that there are people who support what they do.
"We are just hoping everyone in this community and the state of Georgia gets a ribbon to thank our cops for what they do," said Fletcher.
"Back the Blue" is a continuation of a campaign done in January where instead signs were placed to say thank you to police.
