I would like to thank the following Law Enforcement Agencies that sent Volunteer Officers, Deputies and Equipment to assist the Selma Police Department with the security for the 50th anniversary of the Selma bridge crossing (Bloody Sunday).

Without the assistance of these departments and other state, local and federal law enforcement agencies we would not have been able to provide a safe and secure 50th anniversary event celebration. Several of these agencies sent additional personnel that were part of a State Regional Law Enforcement Taskforce.

  • Autauga County Sheriff Department
  • Bessemer Police Department
  • Birmingham Police Department
  • Demopolis Police Department
  • Dothan Police Department
  • Hale County Sheriff Department
  • Huntsville Police Department
  • Hoover Police Department
  • Lowndes County Sheriff Department
  • Millbrook Police Department

  • Montgomery County Sheriff Department
  • North Courtland Police Department
  • Prattville Police Department
  • Tuscaloosa  Police Department
