HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Retired Horry County firefighters are asking the community to show their support for the Baton Rouge Police Department.

Miss Belflowers, who was previously with the Horry County Fire Rescue, has sewn a “Thin Blue Line” flag in recognition of the BRPD, which lost three officers on Sunday in a shooting incident there in the Louisiana city.

Belflowers posted on Facebook Thursday that the community is encouraged to stop by the Spotted Dog restaurant and sign their name on the flag.

The Spotted Dog, located at 3415 U.S. 17 Business in Murrells Inlet, is owned by former HCFR Chief Fred Crosby, Belflowers said.

She added the flag will be available to sign until roughly Aug. 5 before being sent to Baton Rouge.

“We wanted to show them that we do support them and got their back,” Belflowers said.
