Tuscaloosa Police officers are wearing black bands today across their badges in honor of Captain Mike Kearney, 57 who died Sunday at his home after fighting an illness for more than 18 months.

The flags at TPD were lowered to half-staff to honor the day and Kearney. Tuscaloosa police officers say they will continue to wear the mourning bands until Kearney’s funeral.
