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, Ed Gallant from the Bangor, Maine P.D. and Chuck Shuman from the Brewer, Maine P.D. met with five other officers from the area 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 October 2001 we have 14,043 members in 427 chapters in 17 countries!
Our chapter, PA-XV, was conceived in Lancaster County in 1991 and currently has 32 active members from Lancaster, Lebanon & York counties.
