The first ride directly benefited Ali Perez and Craig Johnson, deputies injured in a highly publicized gun battle in 2012. Hundreds of riders from the greater Southern California law enforcement community, as well as many motorcycle enthusiasts from our local community, came out to show their support. Both Det. Perez and Sgt. Johnson returned in 2013 to help turn this amazing event into an annual fundraiser for the Critical Incident Support and the foundation. The ride is now called “Save the Bacon” and supports the foundation, with special emphasis on the Critical Incident Support Fund, which provides assistance to wounded deputies and their families.
