All Support members play a vital part in the success of the Tour. Your commitment to this position is just as important of the commitment as any other participant.
Support members may be team drivers, or overall Support members. Overall Support members may consist of hotel staff, food, clean up support, or luggage support.
During SAG stops, Mitch Smith is our lead and will coordinate all Support members. Each morning overall Support members (excludes trailer drivers) will meet in front of the host hotel, next to the Tour SAG vans.
Team Support drivers/co-drivers assist their own teams but are reminded they are there to assist the overall Tour if needed or called upon. During the Tour dates, Team trailers belong to the Tour, and may be utilized for bike or ditty bag storage. At times, if supplies run short, we may ask a Team driver to assist with a necessary food/water product.
During the Tour, Terie Curtis leads the Hotel Logistics team. Some members of the hotel team may switch daily. Team members will be identified during the Support meeting on May 9th, 2020.
In order to be identifiable, ALL support are required to wear the Police Unity Tour Support polo shirt each day. Police Unity Tour jackets are also acceptable. On May 12th, you are required to wear the black pants/shorts in order to be consistent with all Chapter Support members attending the arrival ceremony at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.

Department patches may be sewn on the left sleeve of the support sleeve. Under no circumstances shall any advertisement be affixed to any Police Unity Tour uniform.
