Support and Remember Your Law Enforcement Officers This Holiday Season

Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S) are conducting their annual campaign and are encouraging families, friends and supporters of law enforcement to decorate in blue lights for the coming holiday season.  By placing one blue light in a window of your home, you'll be demonstrating your support for officers killed in the line of duty and for those who continue to work America's streets.

“It’s important for people to recognize that police officers in this country leave their families and go to work each day not knowing if they will return home,” remarked Chief Frank Kaminski. “What’s even more important is that the vast majority of those officers perform their duties professionally, lawfully and  to the best of their abilities. We owe a legacy of honest and ethical policing to those who have given up their lives for law enforcement. Those who died protecting others and ensuring justice prevailed,” Kaminski continued. “Our communities need law enforcement and law enforcement certainly needs the community. We rely on each other to build trust, to correct issues when they arise and to work together to create a safer place to live and work,” Kaminski concluded.

The color blue is symbolic of peace. By displaying your blue lights, you will be sending a dual message - that you support America's peacekeepers and that you hope the coming year will be a year of peace.
