Area Police Depts join statewide campaign Print E-mail

May 6, 2019:  Police Departments in Miamisburg, Miami Township and West Carrollton are joining the Light Ohio Blue campaign to show and generate support for law enforcement personnel who protect our communities throughout our great state.

In 1962 President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation that designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. The Light Ohio Blue campaign coincides with activities associated with Police Week. This year’s dates are Wednesday, May 8 to Thursday, May 16.

Businesses and residents in all three communities are encouraged to show their support for law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and those currently serving, both sworn and civilian staff.

You will notice several public buildings across these areas basking in blue light May 8 -16, including the Miamisburg Civic Center, Market Square Building, Miamisburg Community Center, Veterans Memorial Park and others. The Miami Township and West Carrollton PDs will also shine in blue.

How residents can help Light Ohio Blue:

• Place a blue bulb on your exterior porch light
• Wrap blue Christmas lights around your home or business
• Light up your entire home or business with blue flood lights
• Place blue ribbons on your mailbox, nearby columns or posts
• Wear Blue on May 15
• Tell your friends, family and neighbors what you’re doing, and post a picture to social media using the hashtag #LightOhioBlue on Twitter.

This year, Light Ohio Blue is collaborating with Batteries Plus Bulbs to offer blue light bulbs at a discounted rate.  You can also find blue light bulbs at your local hardware store. 

Please join us to show support for law enforcement and help Light Ohio blue.
