(ANGOLA) - Riders taking part in the Cops Cycling for Survivors bicycle ride around Indiana met with families and friends of local fallen officers during a stop on Wednesday night at Trine University. Their dinner at the Whitmer Clubhouse was proceeded by an emotional "Officer Down" ceremony.
Survivors of fallen officers Sarah Haylett-Jones, Dave Deuter, Bill Minor, Kenneth Stiverson and Craig Herbert were on hand
Money raised from the ride goes to the survivors of police officers who were killed in the line of duty. It has been a difficult summer in Indiana as three officers have been killed, two by gunfire and another in a traffic accident.
The 12th annual 1,000 mile bike ride is dedicated to Indianapolis Police Officer Rod Bradway who was shot to death last September when he responded to a domestic dispute.
