McAuliffe to Offer Blue Lights in Support of Police

Chicago, IL... State Representative Michael McAuliffe is offering residents in the 20th district the opportunity to show their support for police officers by picking up a blue light bulb they can display on their porches or in their driveways.

“In light of recent events, the brave men and women of our local law enforcement agencies deserve to know the support they have within our community,” Rep. McAuliffe said. “It is a small gesture, but one way we can show our respect to those who go to work every day to make sure our communities are safe.”

Residents may pick up a light bulb Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm at Rep. McAuliffe's office, located at 5515 N East River Road in Chicago. Limit one per household. The light bulbs are free, but a donation of $5 is suggested. The money will benefit the Illinois Police Memorial Fund. The Illinois Police Memorial is a statue in Springfield that bears the names of the officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their communities. 

For questions or more information, please contact Rep. McAuliffe’s office at (773) 444-0611.
