The 2 Works for You camera spotted several drivers in south Tulsa with their lights on. Kunzweiler said the simple act of driving down the road with your lights on lets officers know there's someone out there who supports police and their families.

"You can bypass that switch. You can have your headlight on and you could drive down the road to the streets and highways of this great county, Kunzweiler said. "And every time a police officer drives by or every time family members drive by when they see that headlight on, they're gonna know there's somebody that cares about me."
