Mayor Ashton Hayward said “We understand people on each side have strong opinions, but today’s rally proved that our citizens can work through their differences. I also want to thank our police officers for their professionalism.”

Pensacola Police Chief Tommi Lyter added “The mission of the Pensacola Police Department was to facilitate the protests on all sides. I can’t praise my officers enough for the
professionalism, courtesy, and dedication they showed today. I also want to thank The Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Escambia County EMS, the
State Attorney’s office, and the Pensacola Fire Department for assisting us in this effort.”

One man was arrested during the rally. 24 year old Caleb Burris was charged with battery after he knocked a megaphone out of another person’s hand.
