Tomorrow, over 1,300 members of the Police Unity Tour will triumphantly make their way to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, after an arduous multi-day journey, testing their mental and physical strength. They ride for one purpose, to always honor and never forget the more than 19,000 law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of duty.
As the riders enter the Memorial through the “Pathways of Remembrance,” they will be cheered on by their friends, family, and supporters. Throughout their long voyage, Police Unity Tour members wear special remembrance bracelets that bear the name(s) of the officer(s) they ride for. Many members present the bracelets to surviving family members upon finishing the ride.
Along their routes, members stopped at 10 Target® stores to further the group’s primary mission of raising awareness about law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Target® is a generous sponsor of the Police Unity Tour, and the Memorial Fund’s National Police Week events and activities are also supported, in part, by a generous contribution from Target®.
