Heritage Backs the Blue

Heritage Backs the Blue
#hebackstheblue

Heritage will be holding an exciting week-long celebration to show our support and appreciation for those who serve our community, our Police.

 

Back the Blue is designed and dedicated to displaying public support for law enforcement throughout the United States. Every day, policemen and women pin on their badges and risk their lives to protect and preserve our freedoms here at home.  They continually encounter dangerous situations and keep us safe in ways we will never know.  We recognize that this dedication takes a toll on their, as well as their families, lives.  We want to show our appreciation and in a small way thank them for the job that they do.
