Show support for the men and women in law enforcement who risk their lives every day by wearing and displaying blue on Wednesday, Sept. 30.
'Back the Blue' is a campaign to honor the local police officers who face unknown dangers every shift to protect the community and enforce the laws of the land.
People are being asked to dress in blue, decorated in blue, light a blue candle, wear a blue ribbon or display a blue balloon to show their support.
Wednesday morning people can pick up a blue balloon or a blue ribbon outside the Merced Central Police Station, 611 W. 22nd St., between 10 a.m. and noon. There will be 250 balloons and 250 ribbons ready to be handed out as part of the 'Back the Blue' event, thanks to donations from Merced Airgas and the Merced Police Officers Association.
