I had the honor and the privilege to accompany Millville, NJ’s Team MPD on their journey to the National Law Enforcement Officer Memorial Fund’s Police Week in Washington, D.C this past weekend. Nearly two thousand riders participated in the Police Unity Tour to kick off a week-long of memorial and celebration to honor all of the lives lost in the line of duty.
Team MPD rode this year for one of their own fallen brothers, 40-year-old Officer Christopher Wayne Reeves, as well as the 319 other officers names being added to the wall from around the country.
Filled with emotion, no words could justly describe the reverence felt during the candle light vigil. Each person in attendance mourned side by side each and every name read aloud.
