 Blue Lives Matter

 Officer Ian Fultz and Kevin Furman were honored at Homer Iddings Elementary School's "Blue Lives Matter" program, then came outside to find Furman's patrol car covered in Post-It notes with messages of support from the students all over his patrol car.
It might have looked like a case of vandalism, but two Merrillville police officers knew better when they saw youngsters sticking Post-It notes all over a patrol car.

Homer Iddings Elementary School honored the Merrillville Police Department last month with a special program to show its appreciation for all that local police officers do for the community. Students and staff promoted and supported the “Blue Lives Matter” movement by wearing blue for the program.

Every classroom, kindergarten through fourth grade, presented Officer Ian Fultz, a former Iddings student, and Officer Kevin Furman, the Merrillville Community School Corp. resource officer, with cards or a poster. After the program ended, the students lined up outdoors and placed Post-it notes with personal messages all over Officer Kevin Furman’s car.
