"See you at the station" spreads to police stations across SETX

Police and community members gathered in Pinehurst, Port Arthur and Bridge City to back the blue at the "See You at the Station" event

BRIDGE CITY - Boyscout Michael Tatum could only think of one word to describe police.

"Superheroes," Tatum said.

"Protect the earth!" is what he said when asked what do these superheroes do.

Tatum was at the Bridge City police station as boy scouts and girl scouts delivered and raised the American flag for today's pledge.

“See you at the Station” meetings have spread across the country since its start last year.

The meetings were inspired by the popular "See You at the Pole" prayer meetings at schools. Pinehurst police officer Kevin Norton says he sees support coming from the community every day.

"We get stopped every day you know, by our community showing support. You know, thank you, you know I'm praying for you and that really means a lot to us as police officers and it's really touching to us and shows that our community supports what we do," Norton said.

Port Arthur interim police chief Weldon Dunlap shared that same sentiment.

"When we see the support to our officers and the community coming together like what happened here just a few minutes ago, it really helps police officers to know that their community is behind them," Dunlap said.

And Tatum is one of those community members backing the blue.

"They take care of bad guys,” Tatum said.
