Are you noticing blue tape across the back window of cars in Cedar Rapids?

It's called #BackTheBlue and is an extension of the Des Moines police department's efforts giving citizens an opportunity to show your support of our local police forces.

Local communities across Iowa have been heartbroken since the ambush killings of two uniformed officers earlier this week. This is a simple way to let others know you care.

Here in Cedar Rapids, our news partners at CBS 2/Fox 28 have joined the efforts by offering motorist the opportunity to stop by and have staffers place the blue tape strip across their back windows to show their solidarity and support.

You can join CBS2/FOX28 today at Broadcast Park and "Back the Blue". Just drive into their parking lot at 600 Old Marion Road NE between Noon and 6:30 p.m. They'll put a blue line on your car, to help you show support for police officers everywhere. #BackTheBlue
