Police Unity Tour

Each year, members of the Police Unity Tour, Florida Chapter VIII, ride their bicycles to Washington D.C., where names of all police officers killed in the line of duty are forever etched into the National Law Enforcement Memorial (NLEM) cold cement walls.  We will be riding in honor of Deputy Michael J. Magli, who lost his life in the line of duty on February 17, 2021. All monies raised will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, which maintains the memorial and develops educational programs to strengthen officer safety.
