Thin Blue Line Tree- Farmington NM

"Thin Blue Line" Tree to honor the fallen in the past year.

This “Thin Blue Line” tree was the creation of Sheila and daughter, Kristalee Keeling. Sheila is a Volunteer Reserve Deputy and Evidence Custodian with the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office in New Mexico and Kristalee is a Community Service Officer with the Farmington, New Mexico Police Department. This is the 2nd year they have participated in the Festival of Trees with the Thin Blue Line Tree. Each of the ribbons has the name of a Law Enforcement Officer or K9 that was killed in the line of duty this year. The reason behind the tree is to bring awareness to how many LEOs lives are lost every year. The two had help in putting the tree together this year from Sheila’s husband Dalton, and Friends Marc Kennedy and Stefanie Silva.
