blue light

Goshen police Assistant Chief Kyle Priem poses next to a memorial for fallen officer Thomas Goodwin and a Christmas tree with blue lights that represents the “Blue Light Project.” The project, established by Concerns of Police Survivors Inc., asks the community support families of fallen officers by displaying blue christmas lights, tying a blue ribbon on car antennas and more. The nation wide organization is comprised of more than 15,000 surviving families.

In an effort to thank law enforcement officers and to remember those who have given their lives in service to their profession, the city of Goshen will observe Project Blue Light again this December.

Project Blue Light is observed each December by citizens and law enforcement agencies nationwide.

“I am encouraging residents of Goshen and the surrounding area to participate in a demonstration of heartfelt support for law enforcement,” Goshen Mayor Allan Kauffman said.

Each household is encouraged to display a blue light all through the month of December to thank those men and women of the badge who continue to serve and protect their communities and to remember those who have died serving their communities.

“This gesture thanks those officers who continue to work our streets each and every day of the year,” Kauffman said.
