Sanford, Fla. Police Chief Bill Lee oversaw the decision not to press charges against George Zimmerman on February 26 after the neighborhood watch volunteer killed Trayvon Martin with a registered handgun. Lee’s decision sparked national outrage, leading to a widespread outcry for the arrest of Zimmerman — and the firing of Chief Lee.

Lee temporarily stepped down from his post on March 22 in response to the unrest. Now a small contingent of Sanford citizens has risen up in support of Lee, some even wearing wrist bands as part of a grassroots campaign to save his job.

Rubber bracelets with the message “I Support Chief Billy Lee” emblazoned in uppercase lettering are reportedly being worn by a segment of his advocates in the central Florida town.

A Sanford resident known only as “CJ” has told NBC News that she created and distributed the wristbands to demonstrate that the beleaguered chief still has allies. In one area of her web site, called “Support The Chief,” she states: “During this time of uncertainty and unrest, we should strive to seek answers and not just sacrifices. If you support honesty, integrity, morals AND you live your life everyday in search of the truth and not just justice, then please join myself and others in support of Chief Billy Lee, the overwhelming choice for Chief of Police of the Sanford Police Department. Thank you in advance for your openmindedness and support!”
