“I’m just asking for the community to keep supporting them. We've got a lot more signs,” says organizer Tom Gieryic.
As the back the blue campaign continues to grow, organizers ask the community to continue to show their support for all first responders.
Organizers say they've sold more than 14 hundred signs and now they're selling t-shirts and hats.
Tonight lots of folks showed up to see Albany Police and the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office face off in a basketball tournament at Robert Cross Middle School.
They also sold back the blue t-shirts, tank tops, hoodies, and hats. Tom Gieryic says he organized the campaign after hearing about the law enforcer who was shot in Texas while pumping gas.
“I've always had a huge soft spot for all first responders, all of them, fire, EMS, and the police. People just don't think about them until they need them," says Gieryic.
Albany Police won the game with a score of 55 to 53 in double overtime with officer Larry Hart making the winning shot.
