Press Release: Travis Trek Reception

On Friday, July 7, 16-year-old Travis Risley began “Travis’ Trek”, an ambitious bicycle journey of nearly 1,000 miles.  Travis is riding the length of California, from the border with Oregon to the border with Mexico, to raise awareness and funding for the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation (CPOMF).  CPOMF is a nonprofit charitable foundation whose mission is to recognize and honor California’s peace officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty and to provide support to their surviving family members.  This cause is of personal importance to Travis, whose father is an officer with the Napa Police Department. 
 
The Newport Beach Police Department is honored to support Travis in his endeavor.  On Friday, July 21, Travis will begin the fifteenth day of his ride, departing from Malibu and arriving in Newport Beach.  Once he enters our city limits, NBPD Motor Officers will escort Travis to the front steps of the Police Department, where his journey will end for the day.  After a day off to rest, Travis will then depart from the Police Department on Sunday, July 23, to continue his journey to La Jolla, and then to his final destination in San Ysidro, over the course of the following two days.
 
The Newport Beach Police Department invites any media and community members to join us in celebrating Travis as he arrives at the Police Department.  We anticipate that Travis will enter the city via Pacific Coast Highway between noon and 1:00 pm on Friday, July 21.  He will then proceed south along Coast Highway to Jamboree Road, and finish his day’s ride at the Newport Beach Police Department (870 Santa Barbara Drive).  Updates on Travis’ progress will be disseminated through our Twitter account (@newportbeachpd).
 
Questions about the Travis’ Trek can be directed to Lynda Halligan, the Director of Communications and Public Affairs for the Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs at Lynda@aocds.org or 714-285-2800.  Additional information can be found on the Travis’ Trek’s social media accounts here:
