GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) - A rally to show support for law enforcement personnel is planned for northern Indiana.

Elkhart Police Department senior chaplain Jim Bontrager tells the Elkhart Truth (https://bit.ly/1ziilXG ) the rally scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday at the Elkhart County Courthouse is Goshen isn’t meant to be a statement about any incidents involving law enforcement personnel. He says the rally is meant as a show of support for a group that is feeling discouraged.

Bontrager says he hopes police officers will be able to look at those at the rally and see that they are loved and appreciated.

The rally is expected to last about 30 minutes and include expressions of gratitude and prayers for officers and their families.
