In what has been some turbulent times for police, one Heartland community is planning a day to honor local law enforcement.

The city of Dexter, Missouri is organizing what it is calling Back the Blue day, Thursday, August 4 at the Hickory Log. Everything starts at noon.

Leaders say they want to show appreciation for local law enforcement by treating them to lunch as well as a show of support around town.

Local businesses will be displaying blue ribbons, the Dexter Boy Scouts will display flags around town and state representative Tia Hubrecht will be there for a special presentation.

Dexter police, the Stoddard County Sheriffs Department and local Highway Patrol troopers are all invited.

If you would like to help out or donate, contact Sue Edwards at 573-614-9266.
