     enforcement practices. The Academies will begin with a group meeting on the arrival date. All Explorers

Following a day of rain and thunderstorms in Washington, DC, Sunday, 11 May, the first day of National Police Week, was a beautiful day framed by a blue sky and bright sunshine. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial was filled with law enforcement officers and visitors and off in the distance what sounded like thunder increasing in intensity could clearly be heard. The cause of that thunder-like sound was 1,500 motorcycles, all operated by law enforcement officers, participating in the Annual Law Ride from JFK Stadium to the memorial where a wreath laying ceremony was conducted to start the week’s activities.
