July 19, 2019 – The 15th Annual Cycle Across Illinois benefiting IL COPS began their journey yesterday across the state to recognize and honor the sacrifices and contributions of our law enforcement. The Illinois COPS group was created to serve the needs of the surviving family of officers lost in the line of duty throughout Illinois. In addition to having several response teams, the group is dedicated to ensuring that surviving family members have counseling options. The group also provides support for the children of fallen officers, providing them with summer camp opportunities. The group will be traveling across the state over the weekend and will end their ride in Chicago on Sunday.
