Two members of the New Hartford Police Department are among the more than 2,000 police officers taking part in the Police Unity Tour on Thursday.

Investigators Shane Yoxall and Andrew Allen are participating in their third Unity Tour, riding bicycles from New York to Washington, D.C. to honor fellow law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty. The Unity Tour’s slogan is “We ride for those who died,” and it began in 1997 with only 18 bike riders who raised $18,000.

The primary goal of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty, and the secondary goal of the ride is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum, according to the Unity Tour’s website. Last year, the Police Unity Tour raised $2.6 million for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Investigator Yoxall is riding for Cpl. Michael Middlebrook of the Lafayette Police Department in Lafayette, Louisiana, End of Watch 10/1/17.

Investigator Allen is riding for Officer Jaimie Cox of the Rockford Police Department in Rockford, Illinois, End of Watch 11/5/17.
