Commemorative “Thin Blue Line” flags flew along both sides of Olympic Avenue in Arlington May 12-18 to signal Police Week, which honors law enforcement fallen officers while supporting those still active in the line of duty. Arlington-based R Transport Inc. bought and donated the flags, which were installed by the city Maintenance and Operations Department. “It brought a tear to my eye and several of the officers to see that community support, and quite honestly we’ve seen officers come from out of state and outside the area just to drive here and take photos, so it has really touched people far and wide,” Police Chief Jonathan Ventura said.
