DUNDALK, Md. — The "We Back The Blue Rally" put their kickstands down in Dundalk.

The motorcycle ride is making stops across the country to show support for law enforcement.

Organizers said their goal is to stop attacks on police and fight for more funding for police departments.

"What you are seeing now, this defund the police is forcing your most experienced and biggest ties to the community, it's forcing them out. They are retiring in droves and not being replaced. You're taking seasoned officers, most of whom came from these communities to try and make a difference that can't deal with this anymore. This defund moment is not replacing them, it’s not training them properly. You're not hurting single police officer’s salary. You're taking resources away from the public,” said Ret. NYPD Det. Rob O'Donnel.

The ride was organized by the Free and Fair Election founder Tim Fazenbaker
