Pine Bluff police, citizens march together


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Police and community members walked hand in hand making sure Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy is not forgotten.

People made their way down Main Street in Pine Bluff for the 31st annual marade.

"We are not a Ferguson, we are not somewhere in New York, we're not an Ohio, but we are Pine Bluff," said community leader, Jesse Turner.

In a time when tension between police and people of color is so high, Turner is looking towards change.

Pine Bluff leaders and police officers walked side by side with their citizens and children.

"It's a great statement, it's showing you know Pine Bluff is come together as one," said a citizen, Tiffany.

"What we're doing is bringing young black people together with police officers to begin to build a relationship," said Turner.
