Show Your Support! National Police Week, May 11-18

Please join our 2nd Annual Light Northern Ohio Blue campaign by showing support for law enforcement during National Police Week, May 11 – 18, 2019.

The FBI Cleveland Citizens Academy Alumni Association supported by the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society, City of Cleveland, the Cleveland Division of the FBI, and the Cleveland Division of Police is initiating this year’s campaign to wear blue clothing and light up your place of business and/or residence blue throughout police week.  In 1962, President John F. Kennedy designated May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day.  Since then, cities and departments across the United States honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice throughout the week, designated as Police Week.

We need your support and here are ways you can help!

The campaign will kick off May 1st with Light Northern Ohio Blue posters displayed at various businesses and on social media.

  1. Wear BLUE: Wear Blue clothing throughout the week of Police Week.
    Only in Clev has specially designed Light Northern Ohio Blue t-shirts currently for sale, A free blue light bulb is included with a purchase of the t-shirts in stores.
  2. Light up your home or business with BLUE lights
    Home Depot, Ace Hardware and Dunn Hardware will be promoting blue lights for purchase at select locations for a discounted price during the month of May, while supplies last. Various other hardware store may have blue lights available as well.
  3. Share pics on Social Media: Use #LightNorthernOHblue
