Local News

XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) – Xenia is among one of many Ohio communities joining the “Light Ohio Blue” campaign running from May 8 through May 16.

You can show your support by placing a blue bulb in your exterior porch light, wrapping blue Christmas lights around your home or business, or putting blue ribbons on your mailbox.

“It’s good to know that people appreciate the work and the effort that law enforcement does to keep them safe in the communities,” says Sgt. John Chesser of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Back in 1962, President Kennedy signed a proclamation designating May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day.
