Tower Lighted to "Back the Blue," Thursday, Friday and Saturday


To honor police officers in conjunction with National Police Week, the lights on Arkansas State University’s Dean B. Ellis Library tower will be blue Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 19-21.  The lighting will “Back the Blue” for three nights.

Thursday evening’s blue tower salutes the University Police Department, named the “Team of the Year” on campus for their ongoing work and response to campus emergencies during the past academic year.

Friday evening’s blue tower recognizes Governor Asa Hutchinson’s state-wide proclamation of National Police Week and Back the Blue Day.

Saturday evening’s blue tower is a special "thank you" to Jonesboro Police and the numerous other agencies who have worked with A-State and our UPD during the past academic year.
