Police Week – Light Northern OH Blue

Show your support for law enforcement during Police Week 2018, May 12-20. During Police Week, you’ll see places around Cleveland lit in blue to show their support.

There are three ways you can participate at home, too:

  • Wear blue clothing during police week
  • Light the outside of your home with blue lighting
  • Share photos of both on social media with the hashtag #LightNorthernOHblue

President John F. Kennedy designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day in 1962. Since then, cities and departments across the United States have taken this week every year to honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The FBI Citizens Academy Foundation of Cleveland, partnered with the Cleveland Division of the FBI, the City of Cleveland, and the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society have come up with a new way to honor those in law enforcement this year.

We will Light Northern Ohio Blue.
