NEW YORK (News4Utah) – Four Provo police officers are riding bikes across the country to honor their fallen brothers in law enforcement.
Provo Police Sergeants Huntsman and Ellefsen and Officers Jennings and Rugebregt departed Provo on the Police Unity Tour. The ride tackles 250 miles from Somerset, New Jersey to Washington D.C. over three days.
They ride for five Provo officers that are on the Wall of Honor at the Provo Police Department: Albert O.H. Bowen, William Strong, Frank J. Tucker, Norman Kim Nisson, Trent Hallady.
“We honor their service and will never forget their ultimate sacrifice,” said Provo Police Department in a Facebook post.
Their journey began Wednesday and will conclude Saturday in Washington DC.
The event also raises money for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum.
