Project Blue Light

~ Support Project Blue Light ~

Project Blue Light began in 1988
when the surviving mother-in-law
of a Philadelphia (PA) police officer killed in the line of duty
told COPS(Concerns of Police Survivors)
that she would have two blue lights
in her window for the holidays,
one in memory of her son-in-law and
one in memory of her daughter, the officer’s widow,
who had been killed in a car crash that year.

COPS adopted this idea as a way that everyone
could honor the officers who serve and protect us
while remembering those who
have been killed in the line of duty.

Project Blue Light has grown steadily as a way
of remembering our departed law enforcement officers
across America and beyond.

The concept is a simple one ~
Place a single blue light in your window or light fixture
in memory of fallen officers.

Most people won’t know its significance,
but the ones to whom it matters most, will.

Hopefully it will make us all more mindful
of the best traditions of policing,
and the need for their personal vigilance
to insure their safety and survival.
