C.O.P.S encourages law enforcement personnel and citizeens to display blue ribbons on car/motorcycle antennas, mailboxes, or anywhere a ribbon can be attached at any time of the year, especially during special dates such as National Police Week each Mary and Law Enforcement Appreciation Day each January.
These blue ribbons are a reminder of law enforcement personnel who have made the ultimate sacrifice and in honor of those men and women who serve their communities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, year in and year out.
What does the Thin Blue Line represent?
The Blue represents the officer and the courage he/she finds deep inside when faced with insurmountable odds.
The Black Background was designed as a constant reminder of the fallen law enforcement brother or sister officers
The Line is what law enforcement officers protect, the barrier between anarchy and a civilized society, between order and chaos, between respect for decency and lawlessness.
Together they symbolize the camaraderie shared by all law enforcement officers, a brotherhood like none other.
