What is the Blue light?
The idea for “Project Blue Light” began in 1988 when Mrs. Dolly Craig wrote to C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors) that she would be putting two blue candles in her living room window: one for her son-in-law, Daniel Gleason, who had been killed in the line of duty while serving the Philadelphia (PA) Police Department on June 5, 1986, and one for her daughter and Danny’s wife, Pam, who had been killed in an automobile accident in August 1988. Danny and Pam had 6 children. Dolly Craig is now deceased as well, but her idea is her legacy. “Project Blue Light” now burns bright in the hearts of the nearly 15,000 surviving families of America’s fallen law enforcement officers.
“Everyone who appreciates law enforcement should get involved with Project Blue Light,” said Jennifer Thacker, National C.O.P.S. President, “Project Blue Light” allows citizens to show support for local law enforcement and the heroes who have been killed in the line of duty.”
The New England Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. is once again asking for your support in “Project Blue Light“. “Project Blue Light” is a tribute to officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice as well as those who continue to work America’s dangerous streets.
Since “Project Blue Light” was introduced by C.O.P.S., it has been embraced by many law enforcement organizations and their families. “Project Blue Light” is a simple gesture: please show your support by placing a blue Christmas light in a window or decorate a tree outside your home with blue lights to remind everyone that law enforcement officers serve and protect every day of the year.
