A special movie was shown in Huntington to help law enforcement Monday night. People gathered at the Keith-Albee theater to watch the police documentary "Heroes Behind the Badge".

The film depicts real-life scenes of some of the men and women of law enforcement who put their lives on the line every day.  Some of them lived to tell their story, while others were forced to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Members of local law enforcement and their families came out to support the show.  One man says he has a special reason to watch.  "Of course with my son being a police officer you know it might move me more than the average person maybe," Jim Johnston of Huntington said.  

Half of the proceeds of the film go to support the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
