On June 20, 2009, Thin Blue Line Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (TBLLEMC) was created. Rico Garcia, along with his brothers Gilo and Coyote wanted to start their own LE MC. Their vision of the club was to be different from all the other local law enforcement motorcycle clubs. They wanted TBL to get away from the 1% look of motorcycle clubs, as well as wanting the name to be synonymous with Law Enforcement.

Rico created a rough sketch of the design and once finalized there was never any doubt the colors had to be blue, the color utilized and represented Law Enforcement Officers. The Thin Blue Line is the symbol known by law enforcement officers the world over as the line that holds the frontier between chaos and civilian life, between crime and the American dream. After much thought and research, Rico wanted TBL to get away from death head type symbols of skull and skeleton and embrace who we really are.
