Columbus funeral home shows support for police

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Members of the community are stepping up to show their support for law enforcement.

McMullen Funeral Home, located on Gentian Boulevard, has a banner out front that says, "To Serve and Protect We Support You."

They say the banner was put up following the recent acts of violence that have occurred against police across the country.

Owner Allen McMullen says it's all about showing gratitude to the officers that protect us.

"We have always supported law enforcement in the community and have great friends in law enforcement, we just wanted to show our support," McMullen said.

McMullen says the banner will stay up for the foreseeable future.
