BIRMINGHAM — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office will participate in a rally Sunday called “Police Lives Matter.”
The rally is set for 3 p.m. in front of the fallen centurion at the Jefferson County Criminal Justice Center in Birmingham.
The event, emceed by former police officer Scott Morro, will feature speakers from several law enforcement agencies across the Birmingham metro area. The purpose of the rally is to show police officers they have support.
“We certainly believe all lives matter and want our personnel to understand that we support them and remind them that the overwhelming majority of America regardless of race or gender supports them,” said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Randy Christian.
Trussville Police Department Capt. Jeff Bridges said the department will not participate in the rally.
The rally is open to the public.
