Governor Mike DeWine is asking Ohioans to show their support for the state’s law enforcement by participating in the “Light Ohio Blue” campaign.

According to DeWine, the campaign asks Ohioans to swap out the bulbs in their exterior lights with a blue light to honor law enforcement members and their families.

It is also a way to honor and pay respects to the law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

Light Ohio Blue suggests Ohioans can do the following to participate in the campaign:

  • Place a blue bulb on your exterior porch light
  • Wrap blue Christmas lights around your home or business
  • Light up your entire home or business with blue flood lights
  • Place blue ribbons on your mailbox, nearby columns or posts
  • Wear Blue on May 15
  • Tell your friends, family and neighbors what you’re doing, and post a picture to social media using #LightOhioBlue
  • The campaign takes place May 8-15 this year, in coordination with Friday, May 15 being National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

The Light Ohio Blue staff also works with several Ohio businesses to light the city skylines blue.
