Since 2010, law enforcement officers and survivors of officers killed in the line of duty have participated in the Law Enforcement United bike ride in memory of fallen officers. When Craig Sutter, Western Kentucky ’96, learned fellow police officer and SigEp Ken Copeland, Sam Houston State Renaissance, had died in the line of duty, Sutter (pictured above, left) decided to honor him on the ride. “While I didn’t know Officer Copeland, he was a brother, both as a police officer and SigEp,” explained Sutter, a 17-year police veteran. The three-day, 250-mile ride from Chesapeake, Virginia, to Washington, D.C., raises funds for charities that honor officers killed on duty.
