Project Blue Light: Show your support, thank local police

The Tennessee Highway Patrol has highlighted a good cause to consider showing support for this holiday season:
The Tennessee Highway Patrol encourages Tennesseans to support Project Blue Light and display blue lights in their windows this holiday season.

Project Blue Light is an effort by C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors) The organization asks residents to place a blue light in their holiday decorations or window as a sign of thanks to officers who are now working to keep our communities and highways safe. The blue lights also serve as reminders of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol strongly supports C.O.P.S. and participated in the 7th Annual Project Blue Light Ceremony on Saturday, November 17, 2007, at the Parkway Baptist Church in Goodlettsville.

“The holiday season is an especially tough time for families who have recently lost loved ones. The same rings true in the law enforcement family,” said THP Colonel Mike Walker. “C.O.P.S. is a great organization, but I just wish it never had to accept any more new members.”

Colonel Walker has asked each captain in the Highway Patrol’s district offices and scale complexes to display at least one blue light. A blue candle is also on display in the Colonel’s office at Foster Avenue in Nashville and at his home in support of the effort.

C.O.P.S. is a nationwide, nonprofit 501c organization made up of more than 15,000 surviving families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. For more information on the Middle and East Tennessee chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, please contact Trina Scott at 931-801-8587.
Thanks to Doug Eckert for passing along this information.
