BATON ROUGE – Bobby Jindal hosted a public prayer rally on the steps of the Louisiana State Capitol at 11:30 a.m. Monday to commemorate the statewide day of prayer for law enforcement.

Jindal hosted the rally to commemorate a statewide day of prayer. The governor is also encouraged people to thank local law enforcement officers for their service and commitment to their communities.

Jindal was joined by other public officials, faith leaders and law enforcement at the Capitol to honor the sacrifice of Louisiana’s police officers, according to the Governor's office.

"Too often, we forget the sacrifice and commitment these brave men and women make on a daily basis in order to protect our families and uphold the peace in our communities," Jindal said. "Our officers understand the real risk and responsibility that comes with this career and we are extremely grateful for their dedicated service."

The event on the Capitol steps was open to the public. Jindal is also encouraging communities across the state to organize their own local events
