Mesquite NV - The
Mesquite Police Department would like to invite citizens and
businesses to participate in recognizing the law enforcement officers who serve and
protect us, while remembering those who have been killed in the line of duty
through Project Blue Light.
Project Blue Light began in 1988 when the
surviving mother-in-law of a police officer who was killed in the line of duty
wrote a letter to Concerns of Police Survivors stating that she would be
honoring her late son-in-law, Officer Danny Gleason, by placing a blue light in
her window. The concept is a simple
one. Display a single blue light in a
window (Candlestick replicas serve this purpose well), or place a blue bulb in
a light fixture on the home’s exterior.
Blue lights will shine from December 1st through the
31st. For more information on Project Blue Light contact Lori Todd
at the Mesquite Police Department 702-346-5262 ext. 6150. More information can
also be found at the following links.
