Franklin Police Raise Blue Star Flag Honoring Fellow Officer Serving in the Middle East

Franklin Police Officers have raised a Blue Star Flag to honor a fellow officer recently deployed to the Middle East. This Blue Star Flag (also called the Service Flag) is to honor the mission of Franklin Police Officer Steve Chittanavong, currently serving with the United States Air Force. Officer Chittanavong was sworn-in as a Franklin Police Officer on January 12, 2017.

“More than 30% of our staff is made up of U.S. Military Veterans,” said Chief Deborah Faulkner. “I am proud of their service to our Country and community.”

The Blue Star Flag honors active-duty military members serving during a period of war or hostilities.
