Rouse Memorial Ride cranks up to help families of fallen officers

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of motorcyclists from across Georgia and Florida are expected to take part in the 5th annual Cliff Rouse Memorial Dice Ride.

The ride and festivities will take place at American Legion Post 30 on Gillionville Road to honor the late Dougherty County Police Lt. Cliff Rouse.  

Rouse was shot and killed pursuing a convenience store robber in December 2010.

The ride raises money for the Georgia COPS Foundation, which provides support for the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

Former Dougherty County Police Lt. Don Cheek said "Financially, and support wise.  Scholarships. It's a networking for people who have all got unfortunately the same common bond."

The first bikes head out at 10:30 and return by 1.

The event will include food, bands, and a raffle for an AR 15.
