LODI, N.J. -- Lodi had a large turnout Wednesday morning for the unveiling of its blue line supporting law enforcement.

The line was painted outside headquarters on Memorial Drive.

Among those attending:

  • Mayor Emil Carafa
  • Borough Manager Bruce Masopust
  • Police Chief Vincent Quatrone
  • Deputy Chief Donald Scorzetti
  • PBA Local #26 President Richard Cordero
  • PBA Local #26 Vice President Javier Hernandez
  • Sgt. Russell Inserra
  • Police Officers Keron Piper, David Delia and Danyelle Blocker
  • Detective Eric Castillo

Dating back decades, the "thin blue line" is used throughout the U.S. and Canada to symbolize the thin line between chaos and order.

It's employed, as well, to commemorate fallen law enforcement officers and to represent the shared commitment of all of them to protecting the public.

Citizens have begun using it in curb strips outside their homes and stores, while towns have been painting lines down important thoroughfares to show police that they have their backs.
