Dozens came out Saturday morning to participate in the Back the Blue Walk, which was organized to show love and support for San Angelo’s law enforcement community.

Participants began gathering along the route at approximately 8:30 a.m. and brought flags, signs and other items to show their support. Organizers encouraged attendees to wear masks and social distance.

Max Feuge, a Code Blue member, said he and his wife participated in the walk to show support for the “blue.” He also said it’s important to support law enforcement because when needed, they come.

As the growing crowd walked along Sherwood Way, drivers honked to show their support for the walk.

“I think it’s important to support our law enforcement it helps with the moral,” Susan Werner said.

She also said it’s important to keep the community involved and so they can show each other they are still one nation, especially in a time where people are being asked to social distance.

Linda Mateo said, “We have an awesome sheriff’s department that loves the communities.”

She also said she walked because she believes that the lives of those who work for the police department and sheriff’s office matter.

The morning heat didn’t stop the men, women children from showing their local law enforcement community they love and support them.
