Van Buren Police Officer to Ride in Honor of Maine’s Fallen Officers
On May 9th, for the 3rd year in a row, Sergeant Luke Dyer will join over 1,800 Officers from across the country who will ride bicycles along varying routes, each nearly 300 miles, to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C. in honor of Officers who have fallen in the line of duty.
Each participant is required to raise a minimum of $1,850 to participate in the Ride. All funds are donated to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and Museum. The Police Unity Tour is the largest contributor to the NLEOMF having donated over $10.2 million since the Tour's inception in 1997.
Sergeant Dyer will be riding in honor of Maine's fallen officers. You can help the cause by purchasing a shirt for $18 and assisting with his journey with the Police Unity Tour Chapter X. Each shirt contains the names of all of Maine's fallen, their End of Watch date and department.
Sergeant Dyer has already surpassed his minimum, by selling 337 shirts and raising $3,900 this far.
