Police Unity Tour "Team East Tennessee" "We Ride For Those Who Died" In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized, by Officer Patrick P.

We are sad to announce that due to ongoing complications and restrictions related to the COVID 19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Police Week Tent City 2021, which was scheduled for October 14-16, 2021.

Please note that cancelling this event does not cancel other Police Week activities such as the National FOP’s Memorial Services, which are still scheduled to take place in October.

This is not a decision that anyone on our team wanted to make, but we must keep the safety of all our attendees, vendors, volunteers, and staff at the forefront of every decision. We are extremely grateful for your continued support of Police Week Tent City and offer our sincere apologies for any inconvenience cancelling our event may cause.

While this year’s Police Week Tent City event is not happening, we look forward to seeing you during our normal dates for Police Week 2022 on May 13-15, 2022, at RFK Stadium. Until then, please stay safe and stay healthy.

The rifle is affixed with a bayonet and inverted, signifying that the Soldier went down fighting. The boots signify the Soldier’s last march onto the battlefield. Dog tags are imprinted with the Soldier’s name and hung from the rifle so their identity will never be forgotten. The helmet is placed atop the rifle representing what the Soldier stood for and signifying that their battle is now over. The Battlefield Cross is a sacred symbol amongst military members. Since a funeral is typically not possible during wartime, these symbols serve as a rallying point where surviving members of a unit can mourn and remember their fallen comrades. This Memorial Day, reach out to the Veterans that you know and give them a simple message: “We Remember.” We remember our country’s fallen, your brothers and sisters, and we appreciate and honor their sacrifice. Let us never forget those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.
