The 4th Annual Coppell Police Motorcycle Competition, which was hosted on March 31 at Wagon Wheel Park, attracted a crowd of about 4,000 people, who showed up to see the police motor officers compete at the free event.

The competition featured 52 riders who traveled to Coppell from places such Lenexa, Kansas, all the way down to Beaumont, Texas, to participate in the timed motorcycle events. For the third year in a row, the competition benefited Metroplex Concerns of Police Survivors (MetroplexCOPS), which provides resources to help families of law enforcement officers who were killed in the line of duty, trains law enforcement agencies about survivor victimization issues, and promotes the importance of supporting law enforcement and its survivors. A $20,000 donation was made to MetroplexCOPS this year, bringing the total amount to $46,000 over the past three years.

In addition to the actual competition portion of the event, there was a custom bike show, which had celebrity judges, including WBAP News/Talk 820 AM's Brad Barton and Dallas Country Sheriff's Office Sgt. Peritz.
