Members of the Police Officers Assistance Trust (POAT) will be traveling by motorcycle in a group this Sunday from Miami to Islamorada during their semi-annual Cops Ride for Kids. All proceeds of the fund raising event will benefit the surviving children of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. This year, POAT has 59 children enrolled in the program.
The ride starts in Miami at 9 a.m. Sheriff’s deputies will be strategically positioned along the highway to help the riders pass safely and to keep other traffic moving as smoothly as possible. Please be patient when you see these officers riding on the highway. It is for a good cause.
