Mount Arlington is the latest of our communities to recognize their police efforts my installing a blue line between the yellow.

So, what is the Thin Blue line?

According to The thin blue line represents a stance that we are all in this together as brothers and sisters. It has become a symbol of that line we must stand fast to and hold onto to protect each other from harm’s way. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder on this line, we demonstrate the commitment to all those who we protect from those that may want to inflict harm.

So, where did this Trend start?

The Thin Blue Line is a symbol used by law enforcement, originating in the United Kingdom but now prevalent in the United States and Canada. It was made popular after the release of Errol Morris' 1988 documentary film The Thin Blue Line, about the murder of a Dallas Police officer Robert W Wood. Judge Don Metcalfe who presided over the trial of Randall Adams, states in the film, that prosecutor "Doug Mulder's final argument was one I'd never heard before: about the "thin blue line" of police that separates the public from anarchy." The judge admitted to being deeply moved by the prosecutor's words.

As of this article, Roxbury was also planning both a thin Blue & Red line.
