The Blue Line that is walked by the LEMA Guard is a blue lighted line on the ground leading to the State Memorial. The line represents The Thin Blue Line explained below:
The Thin Blue Line is a phrase known world wide to Police Officers...It denotes the final barrier which stands between our citizens and chaos. The only time this line is disrupted is when an Officer has fallen or is injured in the course of executing his sworn duty. At the end of duty, when this breach appears, our youngest, and finest step up to fill in the line and help maintain order and serve our citizens.
