Shine a Blue Light in December for Project Blue Light
Every Holiday Season, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S) asks citizens to support Project Blue Light by shining a blue light in one of your windows or outside your home.
Several years ago, Mrs. Dolly Craig, the surviving mother-in-law of Daniel Gleason, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, police officer killed in the line of duty in 1986, sent her Christmas message to the C.O.P.S. National office. Her daughter Pam, the surviving widow of Officer Gleason had been killed in a car accident in August, 1989, before the holiday season. Dolly wrote, “This holiday I’m putting two blue lights in my living room window. One is for Dan and the other is for Pam, who believed so much in the C.O.P.S. organization”.
Project Blue Light burns brightly in the hearts of the nearly 10,000 surviving families who comprise the C.O.P.S. organization, a national, non-profit that assists the surviving families of officers killed in the line of duty as they rebuild their shattered lives.
Locally here in the Bozeman area, we would like to honor:
Trooper David DeLaittre who was shot and killed while conducting a vehicle stop on Lane Road, near the Three Forks Airport, on December 1, 2010
Deputy Sheriff Mason Moore was shot and killed while involved in a pursuit of a vehicle outside Three Forks on May 16, 2017.
Thank you for your participation in Project Blue Light this Holiday Season.
