The Massachusetts Municipal Police Coalition supports Project Blue Light.
The idea began in 1989 when Mrs. Dolly Craig wrote to C.O.P.S. that she would be putting two blue candles in her living room window that holiday season. One for her son-in-law, Daniel Gleason, who had been killed in the line of duty while serving with the Philadelphia (PA) Police Department on June 5, 1986, and one for her daughter and Danny’s wife, Pam, who had been killed in an automobile accident in August 1989. Danny and Pam had 6 children. Dolly Craig is now deceased as well, but her idea is her legacy. Project Blue Light now burns bright in the hearts of the nearly 32,000 survivors of America’s fallen law enforcement officers during the holiday season.
Please consider putting one Blue Light in your Holiday Display to Honor Massachusetts State Police Trooper Thomas L. Clardy and Auburn Police Officer Ronald Tarentino Jr and their 131 Brother and Sister Heroes Killed in the Line of Duty this year.
