Dec. 17, 2014 - PRLog -- What began as a suggestion from a volunteer with the West Virginia Auxiliary of Wives Behind the Badge, Inc., has now morphed into a rapidly growing campaign to show national support of law enforcement – the men and women who serve and protect to uphold the laws in which they took an oath to enforce.

“Step Out in Blue”, in less than twenty-four hours, has become an opportunity for people nationwide to step out on Friday, December 19 wearing blue in support of law enforcement. With a hashtag campaign beginning to swell on Twitter (#StepOutInBlue), an event with over 23,000 invitations sent, and supporters forming groups throughout the country, WBTB is proud to be at the hub of this landmark moment.

In addition to Step Out In Blue, a ribbon campaign has been circling social media, as well as Cookies for a Cop, which also took off at a rapid pace. The Sea of Blue Ribbon Campaign encourages law enforcement supporters to display ribbons on mailboxes, decks, railings, etc. to show support for the selfless police officers who work 24/7 sacrificing for their families. Several state volunteers are also joining in on the Cookies for a Cop campaign. In just four short days, the word of a few friends getting together to bake cookies for their local law enforcement encouraged thousands to join. They now have a full website which lists nine states, over 6,100 officers and 12,200 cookies to be delivered so far.

Keep the chain of law enforcement ever growing by joining our Step Out In Blue campaign on Facebook and hashtag-ing #StepOutInBlue in all social media sites.
