WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. -- Woodcliff Lake became the latest North Jersey town to show support for law enforcement by painting a blue line in front of Borough Hall.

In the photo above, Woodcliff Lake Council President Corrado Belgiovine, DPW employees David Linko and Ray Blackston, Officers Simon Sherfer and Keith Kalmbach stand proudly on the new blue line on Pascack Road.

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.
