"I am riding in this Unity Tour to honor these four courageous men who I worked closely with, and all the other law enforcement officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice," said Espinoza. Steve Lovell, Regional Sales Manager for ICOP Digital, Inc., stated, "I served 18 years at the Oakland Police Dept. in patrol, traffic and investigations. I knew Sergeants Dunakin, Romans, Sakai, and Officer Hege, who were killed in the line of duty March 21, 2009, all good men who gave up their lives protecting their community."
The Police Unity Tour Inc. was formed in 1997 by a group of law enforcement officers from New Jersey, who rode their bicycles from Florham Park, New Jersey to Washington, D.C. For the past twelve years, law enforcement officers nationwide have ridden the 300 plus mile trip, with the purpose of raising awareness and financial support for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. The Unity Tour is scheduled to begin May 9th in New Jersey and will culminate in Washington, D.C. at the beginning of Police Week activities on May 12th.
Established in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy and a joint resolution of Congress, National Police Week pays special tribute to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others. Ceremonies are held in Washington, D.C., and in communities across the country.
ICOP will participate in several events planned for National Police Week, to include the Vendor Exhibit, and ICOP has partnered with the Fraternal Order of Police in Washington, D.C., Lodge #1. Event attendees can stop by and visit ICOP staff at the Company's tent May 13, 14, and 15 to learn more about ICOP's mobile video solutions.
