Project Blue Light is a nationwide recognition of those Police Officers who have died in the line of duty.
It began in 1988 in Philadelphia when Dolly Craig wrote a letter to COPS (Concerns of Police Survivors) stating that she would be honoring her late son-in-law, Philadelphia Police Officer Danny Gleason, during the holiday season by placing a blue light in her window.
In 1999 the Horsham Township Police Department planted a tree in Deep Meadow Park on Horsham Road as a memorial to those officers. The evergreen tree is decorated every holiday season with 1,000 blue lights representing all Law Enforcement Officers. In addition to the blue lights there is one white light for each Montgomery County Police Officer who has died in the line of duty. Currently there are 27 white lights on the tree. We would like to ask each of you to please consider placing a blue light in your window during the holiday season to show your support for your police officers.
