Sacramento Police Cycling Team To Honor Fallen Officers
The Sacramento (CA) Police Department is embarking on a unique adventure that will bring national attention to the nearly 19,000 law enforcement officers who have been killed while protecting the communities of this nation. On June 18, 2011, the Sacramento Police Department Cycling Team was the first all law enforcement team to compete in the Race Across America. The race is an epic 3,000-mile bicycle race from California to Maryland. In June of 2012 Team Sac PD plans to take on that challenge again.
Sac PD’s cycling team will again raise money and bring media attention to the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC. Working with the hundreds of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies along the route, Team SPD will honor law enforcement officers killed by carrying their names, visiting local and state memorials, and encouraging media coverage of our efforts.
On average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty somewhere in the United States every 53 hours. As a racing member of Team Sac PD, I encourage you to help us at the Sacramento Police Department honor America’s law enforcement officers as we work to commemorate the sacrifice of our fallen comrades
Team Sac PD’s efforts provide an exceptional sponsorship opportunity for your company. As a sponsor, you are sure to receive exposure from media campaigns as well as gain exposure to state and local law enforcement personnel along the route. Your dedication to law enforcement makes you an ideal partner for this venture.
We have several different packages for sponsorship. For more information and a fast, secure way to donate, please visit our website at www.sacpd.org/teamsacpd/raam. You can choose how you would like to participate in the event and honor officers who have given their lives so that our communities are safer.
