Four deputies assassinated while at coffee.

Join with the Concerns of Police Survivors this Holiday season by participating in Project Blue Light:
Please join with C.O.P.S. in promoting Project Blue Light for the holiday season. By placing one blue light in a window of your home, you'll be showing your support for officers killed in the line of duty and those who continue to work America's streets. By placing strings of blue lights outside your home, at the department, and throughout the community, law enforcement officers will understand that they are appreciated!
Law enforcement families nationwide will be decorating for the holidays in blue again this winter, honoring and remembering Project Blue Light those law enforcement officers who have given their lives in service to the profession and thanking those officers who continue to work America's increasingly dangerous streets each and every day of the year.
The color blue is a symbol of peace. Put blue lights in your window, decorate your tree in blue, trim the outside of your home or the police station in blue lights. Let our blue lights shine in support of law enforcement this season. 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.
