Everyday some 900,000 law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for the safety and protection of others. But that protection comes at a very high price.
Every 60 hours a peace officer is killed protecting our families and communities
Each year, there are over 58,000 assaults
More than 5,000 injuries on law enforcement officers
On average, 146 officers are killed in the line of duty each year
Riders in the Police Unity Tour travel almost 300 miles on bicycles through several states to arrive at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. Each rider participates to honor America’s law enforcement officers, to bring awareness of America’s fallen law enforcement heroes and to help sponsor the Memorial and its programs.
In order to participate in the Tour, each rider must pay a $150 non-returnable application fee and if accepted they are required to raise at least $2,000 in order to compete. The cost of travel, bike shipment, lodging and other expenses is borne by the rider. This is truly a ride of honor for each of them.
