Thin Blue Line
There is something different about the road than before, it is easy to spot if you are looking in the right place. Next time you’re passing a police station turn your eye to the middle of the road. Do you see something different than any time before? Between the double yellow lines separating traffic on the road you will find a line of blue right in the middle. Line of blue on the road is representing “thin blue line” in support for the police and law enforcement officers.
Thin blue line symbolizes an iconic position of police in society as the force which holds back chaos, allowing order and civilization to thrive dating back to 1800s. The "blue" in "thin blue line" refers to the blue color of the uniforms of many police departments today.
