FORT PIERCE, Fla. — The St. Lucie County Business and Community Alliance held a "Back the Blue" rally Saturday to show support for Fort Pierce police and the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office.

U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., kicked off the event at the Causeway Cove Marina.

The event organizer said that after seeing a similar event in Martin County, she wanted to bring it to St. Lucie County.

"It's such an usual trying time," Audra Macon said. "I feel for law enforcement right now, that I want them to know that there are people who still believe in them and are still here to support them."

People participating in the rally marched across the South Hutchinson Bridge to the Fort Pierce Manatee Center.
