A few local law enforcement officers in Alamance and Orange Counties expressed an interest in forming a Blue Knights chapter. This area of North Carolina had never had a chapter. In June of 2015, interested law enforcement officers held an exploratory meeting at Huey's BBQ in Mebane. Joining us, to guide us in the right direction, was North Carolina State Representative Mike Brown, BKNC 13. After much discussion and assigning responsibilities to some determined "members", the next few months would begin a campaign to gather all the information for the creation of North Carolina's newest chapter and to recruit future members. On July 29, 2015, the International office granted our charter and we received our charter from Mason-Dixon Conference Vice Chairman J.J. Lightner (BKNC 17) and North Carolina State Representative Mike Brown (BKNC 13).at a meeting held at the Chapel Hill Fire Department Training Center.
Since our inception, we have remained active and busy. Here are just some of the milestones that we have accomplished in our "infancy": our first fundraiser, Ride For Ridge, raised more than $22,000! Our membership has risen to almost 40. The creation of an auxiliary unit, The Lady Knights. Celebrated our first "birthday",
August 13, 2016.
We are excited about what the future holds and we will endeavor to continue the mission and purpose of the
Blue Knights Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club.
