THEY RISK THEIR LIVES TO SERVE AND PROTECT US...
LET'S LET THEM KNOW WE APPRECIATE THEM!
TIMES HAVE CHANGED. There's no such thing as a "routine call" or a "routine traffic stop". Our nation's law enforcement officers are under attack and every call could become a life-or-death situation in a heartbeat! Last year, 96 Texas Law Enforcement Officers began their shift, but never made it home to their families. They were killed in the line of duty only to become another sad statistic.
WE HAVE TO WONDER...
DID THEY KNOW HOW MUCH THEY WERE APPRECIATED?
DID THEIR FAMILIES KNOW?
It is our mission to host this Second Annual Universal Plant Services Back the Blue BBQ Festival and 5K Fun Run to allow neighboring communities to come together to meet and greet our local police officers and show their support and appreciation for all local law enforcement!

What is "Back the Blue BBQ Festival"?
This exciting “Back The Blue BBQ Festival” will take place on Saturday, October 16th, at the Jimmy Burke Activity Center, in Deer Park! This is a first ever collaboration between Deer Park & LaPorte; between our Police Departments and Citizen's Police Alumni Associations! We are hopeful that this event will not only allow us to show our appreciation for our local Police Officers, but also promote a spirit of unity among our Communities, our Police Departments, and our CPA Alumni Associations. Thank YOU for helping us “Back the Blue”!
