Shine a blue light for police this holiday season.

A blue porch light or a blue light incorporated into your outside holiday decorations is a time-honored way to show support for law enforcement during the holiday season. Blue lights both recognize current law enforcement officers and honor the memory of those who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.

The first 500 visitors to the Project Blue Light table at Roseville's Christmas Tree lighting on November 30 can pick up a free blue porch light, thanks to Roseville's Project Blue Light committee and a generous community donor.

The idea for Project Blue Light began in 1989 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 that holiday season.  One was for her son-in-law, Daniel Gleason, who had been killed in the line of duty while serving with the Philadelphia (PA) Police Department on June 5, 1986, and one was for her daughter and Danny’s wife, Pam, who had been killed in an automobile accident in August 1989.  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 32,000 survivors of America’s fallen law enforcement officers during the holiday season.
