Wallington Paints Thin Blue Line To Support Law Enforcement

WALLINGTON, N.J. -- Wallington joined the growing trend of communities painting blue lines to support law enforcement.

The thin blue line shows that "we as a town care and support the men and women in blue," said Councilman Christopher Sinisi, who proposed the move.

Wallington's line runs down Maple Avenue from Locust to Main.

Dating back decades, the "thin blue line" is used throughout the U.S. and Canada to symbolize the thin line between chaos and order.

It is used, as well, to commemorate fallen law enforcement officers and to represent the shared commitment of all of them to protecting the public.

Citizens have begun using it in curb strips outside their homes and stores, while towns have been painting lines down important thoroughfares to show police that they have their backs.

Wayne Township, Carlstadt, East Rutherford, Ridgefield Park and Wallington have all joined the trend.
