Annual charity event, the Wall to Wall ride, took place on Saturday to commemorate fallen police officers and raise money for their families.
Former Parramatta Eel Nathan Hindmarsh joined the congregation of motorbike riders that made their way from the NSW Police Wall of Remembrance in the Domain, to the National Police Memorial in Canberra.
Officers also rode from Tamworth and Merimbula to meet up with the Sydney contingent in the nation’s capital.
Around 800 NSW police officers took part in the ride.
Started in 2009, the ride has now become an annual event on the policing calendar.
‘‘This charity ride highlights what is best about the NSW Police Force,’’ NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell said.
‘‘Police are a close-knit group who support each other and their families in a way which makes us all proud.
‘‘Unfortunately, the name of Senior Constable David Rixon, who was killed while on duty in Tamworth in March, will be added to the memorial this year.
‘‘It’s important we honour those officers who have served, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while keeping our community a safe place.’’
