The 2012 Police Unity Tour is From May 10 to May 12, tour riders cycle over 250 miles from Portsmouth, Va to Washington DC, in honor of those that have given their lives in the line of duty and to ensure their sacrifice will never be forgotten.
The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum. The Police Unity Tour is the single largest private sponsor of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. In 11 years the Tour has raised over $4 million to maintain the Police Memorial in Washington DC. The National Police Museum will become a part of the Memorial in the near future.
This is the third year I have participated in the Police Unity Tour, and it is a cause very near to my heart. Words cannot express the depths of pain that the family and fellow law enforcement officers feel when they lay a brother to rest. Participating in the Police Unity Tour is a way I can honor the nearly 19,000 officers on the wall of the National Law Enforcement Memorial, and show my appreciation for their ultimate sacrifice.
It is not how these Officers died that make them heroes, It is how they lived.
