A prayer service for first responders–which includes a call for unity across the Alamo City.
“It’s important that we continue praying for our nation, for peace, and for understanding” Bexar County Sheriff Susan Pamerleau said at the First Prebyterian Church Downtown Wednesday Night.
A handful of law enforcement officers were also there praying–including San Antonio Police Detective Greg de Hoyos.
“In a word amazing… the outpouring of support from everyone in the City has been amazing” de Hoyos told KTSA News, admitting recent violence has put many officers on edge.
“I’d like to say yes (that he feels that edge) but I don’t feel that here in San Antonio… I’m comfortable here. Definitely more alert, but I don’t feel a tension in San Antonio” de Hoyos said.
