According to state police, Clark, 29, was shot and killed last week while responding to a domestic call in Steuben County. Investigators said the shooter, a school principal, shot himself after shooting Trooper Clark.
New York State Police Troop E said it's asking people to put a blue light bulb in their front porch and share their pictures across social media platforms.
"Hopefully it will serve as a reminder to everyone how important [Trooper] Clark was and that we back the men and women in blue!" the troop said on its Facebook page.
