This week, Sheriff Mike Chitwood and the Volusia Sheriff's Office are participating in several events in recognition of National Police Week and in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

The Police Unity Tour, a bicycle ride from the Law Enforcement Memorial in Tallahassee to the American Police Hall of Fame & Museum in Titusville, will arrive for an Honor Stop Ceremony at the Daytona Beach Police Department tomorrow, Wednesday, May 12. Sheriff Mike Chitwood and others are joining the ride. The Unity Tour is scheduled to mark the end of this year’s ride in Titusville on the afternoon of Thursday, May 13.

At 8:30 a.m. Friday, May 14, the public is invited to Daytona Memorial Park (1425 Bellevue Ave., Daytona Beach) for the Volusia-Flagler Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony, where we will read the names of all the local law enforcement officers who have given their lives in the line of duty.

At 7 p.m. Friday, May 14, Sheriff Chitwood will also speak at the Law Enforcement Memorial Ceremony at the American Police Hall of Fame & Museum in Titusville. The service will include roll call of those lost in the previous year, roll call of fallen officers with family in attendance and tributes to those lost in the line of duty.
