AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - From the Amarillo Police Department:

At 10:00 a.m. this morning Amarillo police will display emergency lights in support of law enforcement.

Officers will stand in front of the Amarillo Police Department, in the north parking lot, and turn on their emergency lights.

Officers on patrol will stop and turn on their lights as their duties allow.

AUSTIN, TX - Governor Greg Abbott is standing with Texas law enforcement, and he asks you to join him.

To mark the one year anniversary of the attack on Dallas law enforcement, and in honor of all peace officers across the state, Governor Abbott has issued a statewide call to stand with law enforcement.

He is asking all Texas law enforcement officers to turn on their red and blue lights for one minute tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.

"Respect for our law enforcement officials must be restored in this nation," said Governor Abbott. "It is our officers who stand between us and all that threatens, and we must stand behind them by sending a clear message that attacks on our men and women in blue will not be tolerated. I ask that all Texans come together to show our appreciation for those who keep us safe."

Governor Abbott will also attend and speak at the funeral of San Antonio Police Officer Miguel Moreno, who was shot and killed in the line of duty last week.
