On May 4th we were proud to provide a rest stop for the POLICE UNITY TOUR 2016..In May 1997, the Police Unity Tour® was organized, by Officer Patrick P. Montuore of the Florham Park Police Department, in an effort to bring about public awareness of law enforcement officers that have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. The tour started with 18 riders on a bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. which raised $18,000. This May they had over 1800 members nationwide who made the trip, and they are proud to announce that they were able to donate over 1.9 Million Dollars to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, bringing our total donations to nearly 16 Million Dollars. see pictures in slideshow above
