BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA/WGMB) –Saturday in Baton Rouge, community members held a ‘Back the Blue Cookout.’
Dozens of people showed up to show their support for members of our local law enforcement at the Baton Rouge Police Department Headquarters. The co-host of the event, Ladon Weber tells us they cooked for around 600 people and six precincts from around the area. Weber says that the event was not about politic but giving cops a boost to their moral.
“It makes you realize there a lot more support than what you see. You see all the negativity, but to get out and see the positive responses that we are getting,” Weber said.
The event was put on so the community could show their appreciation to officers for keeping the community safe.
