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.
Blue Knights International is broken down into 11 regions, called Conferences. The Northeast Conference (NEC) is one of these. The NEC covers a geographic area including the States of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island & Vermont in the United States; as well as the Provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario (Eastern), Prince Edward Island & Quebec in Canada. The Conferences are divided into Chapters, of which we have 60. There are approximately 1,600 Blue Knights in the NEC, which accounts for about 8% of the total membership.
