DOVER, Delaware— Current and retired police gathered for the Wall to Wall Memorial Ride at Legislative Mall last Saturday morning. At around 9:30 a.m., the motorcycle riders left the Delaware Law Enforcement Memorial, where the names of the state’s fallen police officers are etched in stone.
Three hours later, they arrive at the National Law Enforcement Memorial at Judiciary Square in Washington where more names were written. The ride is meant to draw attention to the memorial and raise funds for maintenance. Half the ride’s proceeds will support the monument; the rest are given to the state chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors, or COPS who help rebuild the lives of families of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty. The organization’s programs include retreats, counseling, scholarships, and kids’ camps.
The ride’s sponsors included Dunkin Donuts, Walmart, the Delaware Police Chiefs’ Foundation, and J. R. Gettier and Associates.
