ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the showing of support for law enforcement in the community does not go un-noticed.

He says it's always been there, but people are nowadays going out of their way to say "thank you" or wear "Back the Blue" t-shirts. 

Belmar says the interactions with people help police realize what they do matters. 

“This is for real, this counts, this is worth it. The way we serve our community is a very worthwhile endeavor,” he says.

Belmar says as trust continues to build, it's his hope that lasting solutions to problems can be found.
