Largo Community Encouraged to 'Paint the Town Blue' in Honor of Largo Police

To support and honor the Largo Police Department during National Police Week (May 11-17), the City of Largo is joining the FBI Tampa Citizens Academy Alumni Association (FBITCAAA) for the inaugural Paint the Town Blue event (PTTB). 

This important week aims to encourage the Largo community, and surrounding communities, with ways to recognize all law enforcement staff for their service and sacrifice. Wearing blue attire, front porch lighting, and chalk art are just a few creative ways for residents to show their support. Largo business owners can also honor Largo Police by displaying blue holiday lights, signs, and messages at their place of business.  

Residents and businesses are encouraged to share PTTB photos and messages on social media by tagging @LargoPoliceDepartment on Facebook or @LargoPD on Twitter and using the #GoBlueLargo hashtag. Community members can also visit Largo.com/WOW to share a special virtual note of appreciation. 

To preserve the health and safety of Team Largo staff, patrons are asked to not deliver any food items to Largo Police that are not individually wrapped. Thank you cards and notes may be mailed to Largo Police Department, 201 Highland Ave, Largo, FL 33770.  

The City of Largo truly appreciates our Police Department for their daily sacrifice to keep our community healthy and safe. To find out more about National Police Week and the Paint the Town Blue initiative, visit TampaBayBlue.org or NLEOMF.org.
