RENO — On Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., the Reno Arch will turn blue in honor of fallen police officers.

Join the Reno Police Department, family members of fallen Reno Police officer John Bohach, area law enforcement agencies and representatives from various honor guards for this event.

The Reno Arch will remain blue until June 1.

American Sign and Crane Company donated the labor and equipment for the bulb replacement project. The cost for the bulbs will be funded by the Reno Police Department.

National Police Week is May 13 through16 and recognizes the hazardous work, serious responsibilities and strong commitment of our nation’s peace officers. Project Blue Light began in 1989 when the mother-in-law of a Philadelphia Police Officer put blue lights in her window during the holiday season to honor her deceased son-in-law.

Local recognition events include the Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony and the James D. Hoff Peace Officer Memorial Ceremony. The annual Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony will be held May 3 at the Nevada State Capitol. The ceremony will honor the 120 peace officers who have been killed in the line of duty in Nevada. The James D. Hoff Peace Officer Memorial Ceremony will be held on May 4 at 10 a.m. at the memorial site in Idlewild Park.
