The third Saturday in September is designated as National Thank a Police Officer Day. Now in our fifth year, a dedicated group of community members from a variety of local organizations and businesses will recognize National Thank a Police Officer Day and our Rochester Police Department on September 17, 2022. We are very blessed to have such dedicated law enforcement professionals who are so committed to our citizens, businesses, and our community.


A committee has been formed consisting of representatives from the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, Rochester Rotary Club, Holy Rosary Credit Union, The Rochester Elks Lodge #1393, and Rochester Main Street to recognize the positive impact that the Rochester Police Department has on our community. Our goal is to have visual displays throughout the city showing our support for our men and women in blue. We will be decorating public spaces with blue lights, bows, garland, and the like, in order to "Paint the City Blue". We are also encouraging residents and businesses to formulate their own displays at their addresses within the city. To this end, the committee will have yard signs, blue light bulbs, light strings, decals, and blue ribbons available at several locations starting in mid-August.
