Today marks the service of Police Officer Jeremy Bitner, who was struck by a drunk driver while making a traffic stop early on May 28, 2012, and passed away.
We are honoring Officer Bitner’s dedication to protecting others and the service he provided to our community. He will always be remembered. Our hearts go out to all of his friends and family.
We are sharing the thin blue line in his honor today. The Thin Blue Line is a symbol of support for law enforcement officers and is used among fellow officers. The blue represents officers and the courage they have when facing insurmountable odds. The black background is a constant reminder of all officers who have fallen. The line is what police officers protect; it’s the barrier between order and chaos. Together, they symbolize the camaraderie law enforcement officers all share, the brotherhood like no other. Today, please share this photo with the Thin Blue Line in honor of Police Officer Jeremy Bitner. May he rest in peace.
