Police Officers Bike to Remember Fallen Colleagues

MAY 5, 2006 -- Local police officers killed in the line of duty were remembered Friday with a bike ride around the city. The annual Police Unity Tour was held in downtown Wilmington.

Police officers rode their bikes to City Hall for a wreath laying ceremony to honor fallen officers. Three officers died in North Carolina last year, including Boiling Spring Lakes Police Officer Mitch Prince.

Money raised from Friday's event will go to the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial.
