On May 9th, 2013, hundreds of law enforcement officers from across the United States will take part in a four day, 300 mile bicycle ride that starts at various locations and culminates at the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC. The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness for Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty. The Police Unity Tour also raises money for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum located in Washington DC.

 The Livermore Police Department is proud to announce and support two of their officers who will be participating in this event. Officer Cindy Moore, a 15 year veteran, is participating in the event for the 2nd time. Officer Elaine Briggs, a 14 year veteran, is participating in the event for the 4th time. Officer Briggs and Officer Moore are riders with the Chapter 13 Northern CA Police Unity Tour. On May 9th, they will begin their ride in Hanover, New Jersey.  On May 12th, they will join other officers from across the nation and ride as one to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC.

 Officer Briggs and Officer Moore have vowed to raise $2,500 each to support the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Officers Moore and Briggs are asking for the community’s support in their efforts to represent the City of Livermore and the Livermore Police Department in the Police Unity Tour.

If you would like to support the officers and donate to the Police Unity Tour, there are several ways to do so. You can make a donation online at www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/livermore-policedepartment, or write a check payable to the Police Unity Tour. Please write “Chapter 13” & “Livermore Police Officers” on the memo line of the check. Checks can be mailed to the Livermore Police Department, c/o Cindy Moore, 1110 South Livermore Avenue, Livermore, CA 94550.  All donations are tax deductible.

 On Thursday, March 21st, the Casa Orozco restaurants in Livermore and Dublin will be helping to support Officer Moore and Officer Briggs in their efforts to raise money for the National Law Enforcement Memorial. Patrons who present the attached Police Unity Tour flier to their Casa Orozco server will have 15% of their proceeds donated to the cause.  You may also get the flier from the Livermore Police Officers Association Facebook page (www.facebook.com/LivermorePOA) or download it directly at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4BiItBp1ZNmUmpRN2R3bVBXaDA/edit?usp=sharing.
