    How come cops escort a private funeral? Usually a private escort is hired

    The cops were probably off-duty, and hired that way making extra cash, maybe ?

    I would guess that part of the reason the police were there escorting was because of the huge crowd expected and necessary side road closures. The motorcycle cops were probably glad to do it.

    Nice last ride for Bruce.

    Among the many things that Bruce Rossmeyer did for the Daytona area was to lease the City of Daytona Beach police its motorcycle fleet for a dollar a bike each year. I guess the escort was a mark of respect on the part of the police to the man.

    Neet way to carry a Casket! I wondered where they got that Cycle/Hurst ? That looks like a whole lot more sensible to Design and Build than that 10 Seater Harley with the All differnt Model Harley Motor’s in it ! Nicer way of leaving this Earth to go Wherever !!!!!!!

    Bruce wasn”t the only dealer to lease to the cops for a buck a bike a year

    In the South the local police and sheriffs provide escorts for funerals. Some, especially in the metropolitan areas, may charge but as far as I know most small and rural departments do not. It is as much about traffic control as it is about paying respects to the families of the dead.

    In the South motorists also either stop on the road surface or pull to the side of the road
    and stop out of respect when approaching a funeral procession.
