ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of motorcycle riders came out to commemorate a Dougherty County Police Officer killed in the line of duty five years ago.

Riders met at the American Legion Post 30 on Gillionville Road for the 5th annual Cliff Rouse Memorial Dice Ride.

More than 100 riders from around Georgia and Florida rode 70 miles through Dougherty, Baker and Calhoun Counties today. Dougherty County Police Lt. Cliff Rouse was shot and killed pursuing a convenience store robber in December of 2010.

"It really keeps his memory alive,” said Lt. Eric Herman, Dougherty County Police Officer. “He was a very dedicated officer, he was one of the best persons you could know. Great family, father, husband. Everybody loved him, everybody respected him."

Proceeds from the ride and auction will benefit the Georgia Cops Foundation which supports families who have lost loved ones killed in the line of duty.
