Beyond the Call of Duty brought its End of Watch Ride to Remember on Tuesday to Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5.
The visit was in memory of Philadelphia Police Capt. James Walker, Capt. Frank Milillo, Sgt. James O’Connor IV, Sgt. Jose Novoa, Sgt. Joseph Youse and Officer Tab Ali.
O’Connor was shot to death in Frankford. The others died of the coronavirus.
The ride began on May 28 and will continue to Aug. 19. A half-dozen motorcycle riders from the state of Washington are accompanied by a 41-foot-long trailer with pictures of 338 fallen officers from 2020.
The effort is chaired and was founded by Jagrut “JC” Shah, a former deputy sheriff.
Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw and John McNesby, president of FOP Lodge 5, were on hand to greet the riders. Family members of fallen officers had a chance to write comments on a canvas mural that included Philadelphia police patches.
