Jagrut Shah, the Chairman and Founder of the organization, says they want to show law enforcement departments who have lost partners and friends that they are not alone.

Shah says this year the organization is honoring 339 officers who died in 2020. His group traveled to Dumas to honor Police Chief Marvin Trejo who passed away on May 10, 2020, from complications due to COVID-19. Chief Trejo was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served in law enforcement for 30 years.

Moore County law enforcement, first responders, and family attended the event to remember Chief Trejo who served the Dumas Police Department since 1994.

The group will travel to 46 states from May 28th through August 18th. The next stop on schedule for the group is Perryton.
