Police Unity Tour 2012

Shortly after 2 pm this afternoon, over 1400 members of the Police Unity Tour completed their long journey to Washington, DC. Participants traveled hundreds of miles the past three days—from six spokes in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Friends, family and supporters gathered at the Memorial, waving signs and cheering on the participants as they finished the long ride.


After all riders had entered the Memorial, a brief ceremony was held, and Florham Park (NJ) Chief Patrick Montuore, founder of the Police Unity Tour, presented a check for $1.65 million to Craig W. Floyd, Chairman & CEO of the NLEOMF—the highest amount raised in the history of the Police Unity Tour.

The NLEOMF thanks all the members of the Police Unity Tour, who work tirelessly to ensure the service and sacrifice of America's law enforcement heroes are forever remembered. Their generosity, commitment, and unity are vital to honoring all 19,660 officers killed in the line of duty.
