The heavy snowfall has prompted Bucks County and its police chiefs association to postpone today's wreath lighting ceremony outside the county courthouse in Doylestown. Officials are firming up plans to reschedule the event for Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.  

The 6-foot wide wreath is part of Project Blue Light, a program that encourages families during the holidays to remember law enforcement officers killed on duty. The wreath will be adorned with blue lights as well as 12 white ornaments, one for each of the 12 county officers killed on the job since 1914.

The last Bucks County officer to die in the line of duty was Middletown Township Detective Christopher Jones, who was struck during a traffic stop on Route 1 in January 2009.

The county commissioners and Rick Pasqualini, president of the Bucks County Police Chiefs Association, will be on hand to light the wreath, which will overlook the central courtyard.
