Light Up Ohio Blue May 9-16, 2021
This year’s campaign is just one month away beginning May 9th continuing until the 16th. Please encourage your family, friends and colleagues to join Light Ohio Blue (LOB) by lighting an exterior light(s) blue to show support for our currently serving law enforcement and to honor our fallen. 2021 will be the campaign’s sixth year and continued growth reaching every corner of the Buckeye State.
As always, our Ohio law enforcement officers serve on the front line protecting our communities, but since last year have done so in unparalleled circumstances during a global pandemic. Tragically four Ohio law enforcement officers died in the line of duty in 2020 and this year in 2021 three brave Ohio law enforcement officers have given their lives protecting their community, state and nation.
And countless others across the state became ill or injured during this same period. Undaunted thousands of Ohio law enforcement officers in every community, county and state agency continue to show up every day to fulfill their duty to their fellow Ohioans. If there was ever a time that was needed to show these men and women, and their families, that their sacrifices and courage is appreciated and needed, it is now.
The West Jefferson Police Department thanks our great community for your support.
