Two Bethel Police Officers are participating in the Police Unity Tour Ride. The ride in May, to Washington DC, is to raise awareness about fallen officers. Officers Jessinia Beamonte and William Holland are participating. The group's motto, “We Ride for Those Who Died,” is a recognition that, on average, 146 officers are killed in the line of duty each year Some 900,000 law enforcement officers put their lives on the line for the safety and protection of others. They are also raising money for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and its programs like the Officer of the Month Award, Recently Fallen Alert notifications and other special projects.
