Police officers killed in the line of duty are to be remembered in a cycle ride from York.
Later this month, a team of serving officers will embark on a gruelling 225 mile cycle journey from York Minster in honour of those who have died.
The Unity Tour raises money for the national charity, Care of Police Survivors.
A north-east contingent will start their three-day journey from York Minster to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire on July 28th.
The team includes Cleveland Police Chief Constable Iain Spittal and Humberside Police Chief Constable Lee Freeman alongside ten police officers from Cleveland, Humberside, Durham Constabulary and West Yorkshire Police.
Each rider will wear a memorial wristband inscribed with the name and information of a police officer who died in the line of duty, which they will carry to the finish line.
Cleveland Police Chief Constable Iain Spittal is riding in memory of Glenn Goodman, a North Yorkshire Police Special Constable who was murdered in 1992 by an IRA gunman.
Mr. Spittal was on duty as a police constable in North Yorkshire the night Glenn was killed.
To commemorate the life of Glenn Goodman, the Chief Constable will pause on route to meet with Glenn’s family to lay flowers at his memorial in Tadcaster.
