GPS Intelligence Sponsors Police Unity Tour to Honor Friends and Family of Fallen Officers
GPS Intelligence, provider of CovertTrack© GPS Tracking Systems, joins in a nationwide effort to raise funds for law enforcement officer’s memorial in Washington D.C.
Scottsdale, AZ — Every year, hundreds of law enforcement officers are killed in the line of duty. The Police Unity Tour brings officers from across the United State together in a ride from Portsmouth VA to Washington D.C., in honor and remembrance of fallen officers. Funds raised by participants are donated to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, a memorial established as a place for friends, family and supporters to come together in honor of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety and protection of our nation and its people.
“GPS Intelligence is proud to be a part of the effort to support this worthy cause”, said owner Jeff Evert. “With the help of other businesses and individuals, we can all play a role in supporting our ‘fallen, but not forgotten’ heroes and their families.”
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial was founded in 1991 by members of the United States Congress to recognize the services and sacrifices of all law enforcement officers throughout the United States. The Memorial, located in Washington D.C., includes the engraved names of each officer who has died in the line of duty, beginning with the first from 1791.
Officers participating in the Police Unity Tour are required to raise a minimum of $1,800 to make the 250 plus-mile ride. The Tour, which began with 18 riders, has grown to over 1,200 riders and has provided almost $10 million to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund includes:
• Operating a Memorial and Visitors Center and Museum
• Researching old and new deaths of officers killed in the line of duty
• Conducting ceremonies and other events at the Memorial
• Working towards preventing police fatalities
• Promoting the Memorial as a major tourist attraction
• Recognizing the anniversaries of all line-of-duty deaths
• Maintenance of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial
• Creation of the National Law Enforcement Officers Museum
