NASHVILLE — A national motorcycle ride honoring fallen law enforcement officers will make a stop in Nash County to pay respect to late Deputy Jared Allison.

The 17,000-mile End of Watch Ride across America will stop at the Nash County Courthouse on Friday. The time will be announced this week, said Chief Deputy Brandon Medina.

Allison died in the hospital on Dec. 1, 2020, succumbing to injuries he sustained in a Thanksgiving Day wreck while attempting to stop a motorcycle on the U.S. 301 bypass in Rocky Mount.

An Army veteran, Allison served with the Nash County Sheriff’s Office for two and a half years. He is survived by his wife and young son.

The ride honors men and women of law enforcement who, like Allison, paid the ultimate price in their service to their communities. Not only does the ride pay respect to fallen officers, it honors the families: husbands and wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters who are left behind to pick up the pieces, said organization founder Jagrut Shah, a former deputy sheriff.

“We want to show departments and their families who have lost partners and friends they are not alone,” Shah said. “We want to let families know that their loss has not been forgotten. A peaceful community is a prosperous community, and we owe a debt of gratitude to those officers who make it possible for us to live in a peaceful and free society.”

This year, the 83-day ride started May 28 at the Grant County Sheriff’s Office in Ephrata, Washington. The ride will make its way across the United States and conclude at Lone Wolf Harley Davidson in Spokane Valley, Washington.

On Friday, day 57 of the ride, participants will stop at the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office in Greensboro; Durham County Sheriff’s Office in Durham; and the N.C. Highway Patrol in Raleigh.
