Friday morning the Texas Peace Officers Memorial Bike Trek were at the San Angelo Police Department Friday to ride for fallen officer Sgt. Korby Kennedy.
A total of seven officers were in attendance riding on their bicycles in the memorial ride for Kennedy’s memory. Kennedy’s end of watch was June 25, 2015. The memorial service included Kennedy’s wife and two daughters.
Police Chief Tim Vasquez gave a brief speech in remembering Kennedy’s service for the department.
“As we progress through the month of May, during police officer memorial week, here locally we will have the opportunity to remember and honor.”
The TPOMBT ride is an annual event to honor peace officers and their families. The group of officers rides throughout Texas.
Officer Steven Bazany with the TPOMBT said, “This isn’t about us, it’s not about the officers coming in, it’s about the families, it’s about the community and it’s about Officer Korby Kennedy.”
