The Meaning Behind the Bridgeport Police Blue Christmas Tree

Christmas trees are a holiday tradition. Some decorate it with different colors and others use red and green. The Bridgeport Police department has an all blue one, for a reason.

For the last few years, the department has always crowned the tree with a blue light in conjunction with Project Blue Light. Project Blue Light started back in 1988 in memory of an officer who was killed in the line of duty. People put blue lights in their windows to show support for fallen officers and those who are still risking their lives to protect our streets.
 
This year, Bridgeport put their all blue tree up in front of the pictures of two former officers who mean the world to the department, Derek Hotsinpiller and his father, James.

Chief John Walker encourages you to put a blue light somewhere among your decorations to show your support as well.
