OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin, legislators and law enforcement supporters are hosting a “Back the Blue” rally to offer support and thanks to law enforcement agencies and officers. The rally is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 12, on the south steps of the state Capitol.
Oklahomans are encouraged to join the rally – dressed in blue – to show their appreciation for law enforcement professionals who risk their lives to protect their communities. Oklahomans also are asked to turn on blue lights that evening in their homes and businesses to show their support for law enforcement.
“Working in law enforcement can be a dangerous job, but it should never be a thankless one,” said Fallin. “I encourage Oklahomans to join us at the Capitol to thank our law enforcement officers for the work they do to keep us safe.”
