Thin Blue Line Flag Supports Law Enforcement
The Rancho Santiago Community College District (RSCCD) Board of Trustees invites the community to attend a commemorative flag raising ceremony in support of law enforcement officials in Orange County and nationwide. The thin blue line is a symbol used by law enforcement, originating in the United Kingdom but now widespread in the United States and Canada to commemorate fallen law enforcement officers and to symbolize the relationship of law enforcement in the community as the protectors of civilians from criminal elements.

“Rancho Santiago Community College District Board of Trustees is grateful for the 46-year-old partnership of Santa Ana College and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. We are also extremely appreciative of Santa Ana and Orange Police Departments for the services they provide each of our campuses, including Santa Ana College and Santiago Canyon College. Because we recognize law enforcement officers in Orange County and across the U.S. find the courage every day to face dangerous situations which could lead to the tragic loss of life, we salute them with the gift of the Thin Blue Line flag to fly over the Santa Ana College Orange County Sheriff’s Regional Training Academy. This flag will remain as a constant reminder of fallen law enforcement officers and in solidarity with the important role that law enforcement plays in our lives. We are also pleased to be able to present Thin Blue Line flags to the Santa Ana and Orange Police Departments,” said Claudia C. Alvarez, RSCCD Board of Trustees president.
