A rally for law enforcement was held at the state Capitol Sunday.
Several hundred people turned out.
"It's showing law enforcement that people are here to support them," said event organizer Kimberly Kruska. "That was our goal."
Kruska said with officers working overtime to keep the peace at the Dakota Access Pipeline protest, this show of support is a good thing for morale.
Pat Dever has a son-in-law who is a deputy sheriff.
"They are exhausted and abused," Dever said. "All they're doing is their job. Enough is enough."
