A nationwide surge of police support has emerged over the past few weeks due to recent attacks on law enforcement. As a result, many Americans have taken to social media to spread the word about supporting law enforcement through the blue light movement, where supporters are asked to turn porch lights blue for a day, week or even the entire month of January. In response, Trophy Club residents have created a community Facebook page (event) called ‘Turn Trophy Club BLUE’, where residents are asked to keep a blue light (porch light or flameless candle in the window) burning through the night Dec 31st.
"This event is to let every First Responder know that they are supported, no matter what uniform they wear”, said organizer and Trophy Club Emergency Volunteer Association (TCEVA) President Dena Boudreau.
The Town of Trophy Club will also light the iconic clock tower, located at SH 114 at Trophy Club Drive, blue through the month of January. Residents who wish to show appreciation for law enforcement and first responders are also asked to participate in the movement.
Thank you to all law enforcement officials and emergency responders who take great risks to protect our residents, neighbors, family, friends and fellow Americans across the country. We appreciate you!
