There will be approximately 2000 bikers beginning in different cities, but all ending in Washington DC at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial (NLEOM) where they will all ride in together on May 12.  The Police Unity Tour motto is “We ride for those who died” and the ride ensures the life and sacrifice of every officer who lost their life in the line of duty is never forgotten. 

The Police Unity Tour was founded in 1997 with the hope of bringing public awareness to all law enforcement officers that have died in the line of duty and to honor their service and sacrifices.  Sign up here

The Police Unity Tour also raises funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial (NLEOM) in Washington, D.C.  The NLEOM is a tribute to all federal, state, and local law enforcement officers.  Engraved on the marble walls are the names of over 20,000 officers that have lost their lives in the line of duty.  The NLEOM receives no government or

taxpayer revenue, but relies on the contributions of organizations and interested citizens.  Members spend the year raising awareness in their communities for police officers that have died in the line of duty. 

As members of the Tour, John, Brett & Matt are required to raise a minimum of $1,800 each and bicycle/work the 250 miles.  All donations to the Police Unity Tour ultimately go to the NLEOM.
