Eleven founding members chartered Law Enforcement United (LEU) in the fall of 2009. Law Enforcement United's membership includes federal, state and local law enforcement officers, survivors, as well as civilian support members, stretching across the United States of America. Law Enforcement United is founded upon and committed to honoring officers that have died in the line of duty, and ensuring that their surviving family is supported and never forgotten.
Law Enforcement United began with our Charter Division in Chesapeake, Virginia. Governed by the Virginia Division Executive Board and humble but ambitious beginnings of about 150 participants our organization was an immediate success. Each year we continued to grow and when the Pennsylvania Division formed in 2011, the Virginia Division became the temporary parent of the blossoming Law Enforcement United. The Virginia Division Executive Board served as the National Executive Board of Law Enforcement United; providing guidance and oversight to the Pennsylvania Division, FLETC Long Ride and in 2014 to the New Jersey Division and Maryland Division (AKA Ruff Ride). In 2015 national oversight of Law Enforcement United was established to take over business operations and the Virginia Division returned to their own division specific governance. In 2016, LEU approved the addition of a new sanctioned event, which soon became known as the Tough Ride. Beginning in Roanoke, VA and traveling northeast to Washington, D.C., the Tough Ride crosses the Blue Ridge Mountains. LEU continues to grow with over 1,500 members from more than 26 states and Canada.
