I have incorporated The Thin Blue Line into both my USA flag and my USA cutout (check out my other listings). Our police officers put their lives on the line for us, the Thin Blue Line symbolizes their bravery and sacrifice. When I decided to offer the Thin Red Line and Thin Blue Line pieces, I did a little research. This is what I found out:
The Thin Blue Line is a symbol used by law enforcement to commemorate fallen law enforcement officers and to symbolize the relationship of law enforcement in the community as the protectors of civilians. Each stripe on the emblem represents certain respective figures: the blue center line represents law enforcement, the top black stripe represents the public, and the bottom represents criminal acts. The idea behind the graphic is that law enforcement (the blue line) is what stands between the violence and victimization by criminals of the would-be victims of crime. It is a symbol of honor and bravery--one which I am personally honored to offer to our law enforcement.
This piece is made from reclaimed wood and handmade to order, each one is totally unique. Item may differ slightly from photos.
