RIDE FOR THOSE WHO DIED
Today, marked the beginning of the 2017 Unity Tour. While we slept, officers began their 300-mile tour in honor of fallen officers from around the nation. 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 Officer’s Memorial and Museum.
Captain John Whitney, Sergeant Jeremy Huff, Sergeant Drew Ramsay, Corporal Dustin Joseph, Detective Kevin Rose, Officer Officer Jeff Tai, Officer Jason Bauer, Officer Gary Jones, Retired Captain Jim O'Connell and Retired Corporal John Garcia began their ride from Princeton, New Jersey and will ride all the way to the National Police Officers Memorial in Washington DC, where the ride is expected to conclude on Friday, May 12th.
We commend these officers for their undying commitment to recognize the men and women that have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. We would also like to thank our many supporters for their generous donations, which have made our participation in this annual event possible.
THE RIDE CONTINUES
Our VPD Unity Tour Riders set out this morning on their 100-mile trek from Somerset, New Jersey to Wilmington, Delaware. The 300 mile tour began yesterday in New Jersey during the first leg. Over 1,500 riders representing law enforcement agencies from across the nation are participating in this annual event, which will conclude at National Peace Officer's Memorial in Washington DC on Friday, May 12th.
Our participation in this event was made possible by the generous donations of many in our community who consistently support the efforts of our riders who honor our officers that have died in the in the line of duty.
Have a safe ride ride today VPD team!
