About 125 riders are going through training courses at the Valley River Center south parking lot, and they will be competing on May 17. This year’s event is sponsored in part by the Eugene Police Foundation. 

The memorial ride to 52nd Street and Highway 126 for Kilcullen, who was a traffic enforcement unit officer, is scheduled for 11 a.m. Most of the officers at the conference will ride to that location, where Kilcullen was killed in the line of duty in 2011, and pay their respects at the Officer Chris Kilcullen Memorial Site.

May 12 to 19 is National Police Week, a time when our country memorializes law enforcement personnel who died in the line of duty.
