Every year law enforcement officers throughout the country are killed in the line of duty. These fallen hero's leave behind husbands, wives, children, family and friends. They have paid the ultimate sacrific while protecting and serving the citizens of our communities.
During National Law Enforcement Officers Week in May of each year, over one thousand law enforcement officers ride their bicycles from North Hanover, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC. This bicycle ride is to raise awareness of officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial and Museum in Washington DC.
The Lawrence Township Police Unity Tour Team will have the honor of riding a third year for this great cause. The Tour leaves New Jersey on May 9, 2011 and arrives in Washington DC on May 12, 2011.
Please help support the members of our team, the families of the fallen officers, the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum. This page makes donating easy and provides proof of your donation for tax purposes. Any donation is very much appreciated by the team members.
Remember that the Police Unity Tour will ride through Mercer County along Route 130 on May 10, 2011.
