In wake of the recent assassinations of police officers across the nation, some local residents have come together and planned an event to show support for our local law enforcement officers.

Missy Henderson, girlfriend of Uniontown Police Chief Jeffery Hart, is one of the organizers of the ‘Union County Backs the Blue’ event.

Missy knows all too well what it’s like to have a loved one in law enforcement during this stressful time in our nation for our men in blue.

The event will be held Tuesday evening.

And Missy says family, friends and other officers in the tri-county area are invited to the event.

If anyone has any questions or would like to help out in some way, you can contact Debbie Thomas or Missy Henderson at (270) 952-4948. Missy indicates they also have set up a Union County Backs the Blue Facebook page.

In addition, Creative Touch in Morganfield tells WMSK News they are giving away free blue bows to banks, businesses and offices in Union County in order to show support for our men in blue. You can stop by the business and pick up one.

The ‘Union County Backs the Blue’ event begins at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday at the Union County Courthouse.
