NEW YORK (AP) - Some supporters of the New York Police Department made their feelings clear at a pro-police rally in Queens.

About 100 people gathered Tuesday afternoon at Queens Borough Hall.

The event was led by retired NYPD captain Joseph Concannon.

He says he wanted to demonstrate the kind of support law enforcement has in the city, despite recent anti-police brutality protests.

Concannon says other rallies are planned in other boroughs.

Janet Maderik, who’s married to an NYPD officer, says police officers are “guardians of our city.”

The relationship between NYPD officers and Mayor Bill de Blasio has worsened in recent weeks, especially after the killings of two officers in their patrol car.
