The 2017 State Ride is set for Monday, March 27 – Sat April 1, 2017
The State Ride is an annual, week long motorcycle ride that visits every Florida police department who lost an officer during the previous year. You will have the rare opportunity to meet the family, friends and co-workers who were a part of the Fallen Officers everyday life. This is a way to express ourselves in a one-on-one basis with those who were closest with that officer.
