Police Chief Bans Display of 'Thin Blue Line' Flag


The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s police chief banned the use of “thin blue line” imagery while officers are acting in an official capacity.

The flag that has been seen as a symbol of support for police officers has also been criticized as a symbol of white supremacy and was seen during the incursion of the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Police Chief Kristen Roman wrote in a Jan. 15 email to UW-Madison Police staff that the flag had been “co-opted” by extremists with “hateful ideologies” and asked for her department to distance itself from the flag in order to rebuild trust in the community, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.
