About the Blue Knights®
The BLUE KNIGHTS® is a non-profit fraternal organization consisting of active and retired law enforcement men & women who enjoy riding motorcycles.
In the Spring of 1974, several law enforcement officers from the Bangor, Maine (USA) area met and and formed a small, local motorcycle club. The rest, as they say, is history.
Soon, Blue Knight chapters were being formed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and beyond. With the addition of Canada, and later Australia, the Blue Knights became an international organization.
As of September, 2008, we have 606 chapters and almost 20,000 members in 29 countries.
According to the By-Laws, our purposes and goals are to:
·Provide for the mutual assistance, enjoyment, entertainment, education, physical, mental and social benefit of its members and the general public.
·To promote and advance the sport of motorcycling and the safety of motorcycling.
·To serve the interests of motorcycle owners and users.
·To promote by example and any other acceptable means, safe use, operation and enjoyment of motorcycles.
·To develop a fraternal spirit between law enforcement personnel and the general public.
Many Blue Knights® work long and hard to raise money for various charities. Here in the UK we pay particular attention to helping UK COPS (Care of Police Survivors), a charity dedicated to caring for the families of police officers killed in the line of duty.
