Nine Nottinghamshire Police officers, staff and volunteers have taken part in this year’s Police Unity Tour.

The tour rode through Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire and finished at the National Arboretum on Sunday 28 July 2019.

The team was met by Nottinghamshire Police's Chief Constable Craig Guildford at The Beat's plaques and laid flowers for officers who sadly died on duty, PC Christopher McDonald and PC Ged Walker.

The 180-mile tour is held each year to help raise awareness of law enforcement officers across the world who have died in the line of duty, as well as to show solidarity and support to the friends and family they sadly left behind.

The tour also helps to raise funds for Care of Police Survivors – a UK charity dedicated to helping the families of police officers who have lost their lives on duty.

DC Sarah Stables said: "I'm really proud of our team to support the event again this year and we're already trying to drum up further support and get more officers in 2020.

"I'd like to thank everyone for supporting the team of nine, despite the typical British summer weather!"

Nottinghamshire Police is proud to once again to support the event this year, with nine of the force’s officers, staff and volunteers featuring among the 460+ riders who have taken part in this year’s event.The tour is over three days covering 180 miles in total.
