Why start a Law Dogs Chapter?
We didn’t all ride Harley-Davidson(R) motorcycles and wanted to have a team building atmosphere in a club; Law Dogs Nation offered us a chance to start fresh in our own community. Some of us are new riders and like the idea of group rides. We wish to raise the level of enthusiasm for riding motorcycles, share experience and tips in riding and to promote safe riding. The chapter will sponsor fund raising events to help area charity organizations as well as build relationships among the different agencies and motorbike enthusiasts in the area.
What are we all about?
We are a Law Enforcement (LE) and Emergency Service Personnel (ESP) based motorcycle club that is a non-profit organization.
To be considered for membership: You must have ownership rights to and ride a motorcycle or plan to own one within six months. Any make of motorcycle is allowed for membership in the club. However, we strongly encourage the cruiser type as opposed to a sport or racing bike due to the type of riding the club promotes.
You must be a full-time, part-time or reserve Police Officer with powers of arrest (including Armed Forces Law Enforcement personnel); or, retired or vested police officer from a full-time law enforcement agency; or retired, full-time, or part-time firefighter; or, emergency medical personnel or full-time corrections officer. We may also accept a limited number of civilians who have a high regard and respect for the work that we do.
You must be properly licensed to ride and operate a motorcycle and be able to provide, upon request, proof of insurance. Note that meeting these minimum qualifications does NOT guarantee membership – membership is not automatic. For further details concerning qualifications, requirements and prospecting with our club, email us.
What are our goals as a club?
The goal of the club is to generate an increased level of enthusiasm for riding motorcycles. To hold events that are intended to promote moral and safe riding among law enforcement personnel, emergency service personnel and civilians that have a high regard for such personnel. Another goal is to raise money for charity organizations of the club’s choice.
We are NOT a 1% club, nor do we claim to be. We are proud to wear our colors with the State rocker because many of us carry badges which plainly proclaim our service to the State. Many of us have fought, bled and sacrificed for our communities. Some of us have saved lives, and a few of us have had to take lives, but ALL of us would GIVE our lives to protect the people of our communities. We have EARNED the right to wear our colors.
