Project Blue Light is a program to encourage our communities to display blue lights during the holiday season in honor of fallen law enforcement officers and for those who continue to put their lives on the line.

The color blue is symbolic of peace and associated with law enforcement. It is sponsored by Minnesota Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), a non-profit organization which provides resources to assist families and co-workers of officers who died in the line of duty and trains law enforcement agencies on survivor issues.
