Hundreds of people plan to rally in support of Albuquerque police officers on Saturday.

According to a Facebook page, around 1,700 people will attend the "Support APD" rally in Civic Plaza at 10 a.m.

The gathering will come exactly two days after the Department of Justice released findings from its investigation into APD.

The Justice Department's report found most officer-involved shootings between 2009 and 2012 were not justified.

Critics of APD have praised the findings, but another segment of Albuquerque is calling for the community to support police officers.
