Annual "Bike across Indiana Ride" Peddles Thru Scott County
Concerns of Police Survivors Annual "Bike across Indiana Ride" Peddles Thru Scott County
Scott County-On 7-22-2022, the annual Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) bike across Indiana made its way thru Scott County on Friday, stopping for a short visit at the Jennings Township Volunteer Fire Department for much-needed refreshments. The event, held annually each year, is conducted by law enforcement officers and family members of police officers. The essence of the ride is two-fold...officers killed in the line of duty are remembered and furthermore, their families are reminded they are not forgotten nor are they alone in their grief. After spending a short visit with Sheriff Goodin, other local officers, and family members, the ride once again peddled away into the morning sun, escorted by Sheriff's Deputies as they made their way across Scott County. The ride ends each year at the Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis after crossing the entire State of Indiana. Sheriff Goodin, on behalf of the C.O.P.S. Riders, sends out a huge thank you to the Jennings Township Volunteer Fire Department and Fire Chief Joe Smith for providing their headquarters as a rest stop for the visit in Scott County.
