They rolled out of Red Bank on May 9 and rolled into Washington D.C. today.

Fair Haven Police Chief Darryl Breckenridge, Cpl. John Waltz and Patrolman Dwayne Reevey, part of the Chapter 10 group of Monmouth County cops in the “ride for those who died” — the Police Unity Tour — reached their destination at about 3 p.m., the Fair Haven PBA Local 184 announced.

The bike ride, which spanned roughly 230 miles for Chapter 10, began in 1997 with 18 riders, was designed to inspire “public awareness of of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and (to) honor their sacrifices” and raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum at the D.C. destination.

The Unity Tour, as of last year, had raised about $16 million. Nearly 20,000 officers who died in the line of duty are memorialized at the Washington site.

“Congratulations are in order for Chief Darryl Breckenridge, Cpl. John Waltz and Ptl. Dwayne Reevey on completing the journey! Well done!” the post on the Fair Haven PBA Facebook page said.

Yes, congrats to all!
