In 2012, the “Ride for Ali” attracted over 300 riders from around San Diego and Imperial Counties. Law Enforcement Riders joined motorcycle clubs, enthusiasts, and recreational riders to support Det. Ali Perez and Sgt. Craig Johnson who were injured during a gun battle while investigating a child abuse crime.
