A tribute in blue lights

Updated 5/22/2018 9:44 AM

The Bloomingdale Police Department is encouraging all of its residents to show their support for our police officers, as well as honor the fallen officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, including our own fallen officer, Ray Murrell, by participating in the "Light Up Our Community" event during National Police Appreciation Week (May 13 -- May 19) by replacing their exterior porch lights or front window light with a blue bulb. We would really like to see our entire community lit up in blue as a show of support and gratitude to those who have taken the oath to serve and protect our community, and it would be a fitting tribute to all police during National Police Appreciation Week.

Frank Giammarese, Director of Public Safety
