Lowered flags, blue lines on Columbia Avenue to recognize service, sacrifice during National Police Week

Post Date:05/11/2020 3:00 PM
Flags have been lowered and blue traffic lines were installed in front of Franklin Police Headquarters, this morning, in recognition of  National Police Week, May 10-16. This week, especially, we remember the police officers who have been killed while serving America’s communities.

As you drive by Franklin Police Headquarters this week, take a moment to think about the brave men & women who work here, serving Franklin with excellence & protecting this incredible community we’re proud to call home.


Special thanks to the Franklin Street Department,
whose work made the blue striping possible.
