In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized with the hope of bringing public awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices.

The original ride started with 18 riders on a four day fund-raising bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. which raised $18,000.00.

This past May the tour had over 1800 members nationwide who made the trip and we the group was able to donate over 1.91 million dollars to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Total donations are nearly 16 million dollars to date inspired by the tours motto, “WE RIDE FOR THOSE WHO DIED.”
