Who are the Blue Knights???
The BLUE KNIGHTS® is a non-profit fraternal organization consisting of active and retired law enforcement men & women who enjoy riding motorcycles.
In the Spring of 1974, several law enforcement officers from the Bangor, Maine (USA) area met and and formed a small, local motorcycle club. The rest, as they say, is history.
Soon, Blue Knight chapters were being formed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and beyond. With the addition of Canada, and later Australia, the Blue Knights became an international organization.
As of 1 June 2012, we have 599 chapters and almost 20,000 members is 29 countries. This makes the Blue Knights the largest motorcycle club for law enforcement officers in the world.
According to the By-Laws, our purposes and goals are to:
1. Provide for the mutual assistance, enjoyment, entertainment,
2. To promote and advance the sport of motorcycling and the safety of motorcycling.
3. To serve the interests of motorcycle owners and users.
4. To promote by example and any other acceptable means, safe use, operation and enjoyment of motorcycles.
5. To develop a fraternal spirit between law enforcement personnel and the general public.

We're the good guys!
The Blue Knights is a family fraternity. Spouses and children often accompany our members to the various rides and functions. When travelling, local members can provide assistance, directions and sometimes a place to stay. We are truly a family. We do not associate with "outlaw" or "1%" motorcycle clubs! We rather enjoy the company of fellow law enforcement officers and other motorcycle riders that consider themsleves members of the "99%" group of bikers.
The Nebraska-IV chapter of the Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Officers Motorcycle Club is the youngest chapter within the State of Nebraska. Our chapter was chartered in May of 2008. Currently there are four chapters within our state. The chapters are: Nebraska I (Grand Island), Nebraska II (Omaha), Nebraska III (Chadron) and Nebraska IV (Scottsbluff).
Our members are employed by the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff's Office, Gering Police Department, Mitchell Police Department, Nebraska State Patrol, Torrington (Wyoming) Police Department, and the Scottsbluff Police Department.
