Today, Beyond the Call of Duty honored Sergeant Bronc McCoy, #7739 in their End of Watch Ride to Remember 2020. Beyond the Call of Duty consists of a six-man motorcycle team that will travel 22,500 miles across the country accompanied by a 43-foot long trailer that has the pictures of 339 officers lost in the line of duty on it to honor them, their families, their departments, and the communities in which they served.
The team started their 84-day ride on May 28, 2021 and will conclude on August 18, 2021. They will visit 194 police departments, in 46 states to honor 339 officers who made the ultimate sacrifice by the giving of their lives in the performance of their duties. When asked why they do this, the founder, Jagrut Shah, expressed, “To honor the officers that made the ultimate sacrifice and to let the departments know that their hurt is felt.” He also expressed the need to let the survivors know that their officer’s legacy would not be forgotten. Marcie Parker, the sister of Sergeant McCoy was in attendance to remember and expressed her appreciation to Mr. Shah and Beyond the Call of Duty for honoring her brother in this way. During their visit, Chief Igo presented Mr. Shah with a Dallas Police Patch that was placed on the Beyond the Call of Duty-End of Watch Ride to Remember 2020 memorial banner.
