Man uses rubber bracelets to show police support

Posted: Updated:

It's a simple blue bracelet.

The message behind it: Concern Over Police Safety.

"There are a few bad people. But it shouldn't wreck it for all the wonderful people who are in there," said Herman Ferguson.

Created by the Fenton native in the wake of the death of MSP Trooper Chad Wolf, Ferguson is trying to dispel the notion that all police are bad.

"We want to raise awareness and show the police officers that there are many millions of people that care about them, and what they do, and concerned about their safety," Ferguson said.

Chief Scott Sutter and his Linden Police Department have already ordered up their bracelets.

"I gave it to my guys and they were thrilled. Just somebody supporting them and what not, and I said Herman this is a great idea, it could be a movement," Sutter said.

But where does the Concern Over Police Safety movement go from here?

Ferguson said it's already in places as far away as Texas.

But to keep it growing, he needs the money to keep making the bracelets.

"There's a million people, with a million kind giving hearts, that feel the same way I do about police. And that's where the money will come from," Ferguson said.
