A group of law enforcement riders on?motorcycles passing through Lincoln?County last week caught the eye of a?number of local residents. Many wondered what it was about.
Sheriff Kerry Lee said he assumed it?was most likely a long ride by a graduating class of motorcycle officers from?the Academy at Las Vegas Metro. ?They?usually take them on a long endurance?ride, 100 miles or more, at the end of?their training sessions. Something different than just riding through the city.?It?s usually done once a year.?
On another matter, Lee told about the?updating being done May 19 on the CodeRed database and deleting the numbers that had changed and added new?number, to check the rate of time taken?for the calls and to see if all who are?signed up did get the call.
The All Call message was as follows:
