The Webster Parish Chapter of the American Bikers Active Towards Education, or ABATE of Louisiana, Inc., were on the corner of the Minden Civic Center Monday offering snacks, water and Gatorade to local law enforcement to show their support for local law enforcement. Public Relations Officer Diana Funderburk says they deserve to be recognized, know they are supported and “we have their back.”

Donations collected at Fanette’s Flower House from blue ribbons made to display at homes and businesses across Minden will go towards equipment and training materials for the Minden Police Department’s Special Response Team. Hodges, through the generosity of the community, gave Cropper $900, and she says contributions are still coming in. The SRT meets regularly to train for different scenarios police may encounter, such an active shooter scenario.  Michelle Bates/Press-Herald
