Police Unity Tour Honors Those Killed in Line of Duty

When cops ride bikes for any reason, it’s good for bicyclists.

On May 9, the police chief leaves behind the bulletproof vest and paperwork to embark on a 300-mile bicycle trek from Florham Park, NJ to Washington D.C. for the 16th annual Police Unity Tour.

Over 1,400 officers rode last year, raising $1.5 million to maintain the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and museum to honor those who gave their lives while on the clock. Over 19,000 names are on the wall. Nine alone have died in the last month.

For Ward, on his third Unity trip, it’s personal.

“I’ve lost a few friends over the years in the line of duty,” he says.
