Constables, our assistance has been cordially requested. We have been invited to assist and/or participate in the 6th Annual “Kentucky Brotherhood Ride” in July 2024. Further details will come as the event date approaches. For more information about the event watch the video below.
The request came as follows to KCA President Michael Saylor:
Thank you again for taking the time to speak earlier about our event coming up in July. As we discussed, the Kentucky Brotherhood Ride is 501(c)3 non-profit that is made up of public safety professionals (police, fire, EMS, corrections, etc) who bicycle 400 miles over 4 days each year to provide emotional and financial support to the families of the fallen in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This is our 6th year of this event. This year we will be riding to honor 14 of Kentucky’s fallen heroes. One of those being Constable who died in the line of duty. We are requesting your assistance mainly with the following things:
1. We will have an honor stop in Owenton likely on the evening of July 17 or possibly the morning of July 18. We would ask for your membership to attend this and help us with an informal ceremony we will do to honor the family.
2. Any of your members who wish to assist with escorting us through their jurisdictions (along with the respective sheriffs office, Kentucky State Police and municipal police departments and fire departments who will also be apart of this), we would certainly welcome as well.
3. Lastly, we would love for your members who serve in the areas of our honor stops to come and eat supper with us the nights we are there……….
…… Thank you again for your time…. I look forward to speaking with you again very soon.
