MACON, Ga. — American Legion held a police memorial ride Saturday in memory of fallen officers in Central Georgia. Bikers from all over came out to honor those they've lost.
The 60-mile ride began at 11 a.m. escorted by the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.
Several different organizations came out, such as Concerns of Police Survivors or COPS, to provide resources for those who've lost loved ones.
COPS executive director Roger Parker shared with us why he believes the ride and these organizations are important.
"Our survivors need a lot of love, a lot of support. Obviously, when you lose a loved one in the line of duty, it's rather traumatizing and we feel like our organization can help rebuild those shattered lives," said Parker.
The ride concluded with a party at American Legion Post #3 with food, music, and a raffle.
