Jamestown officer will ride to raise money
Jamestown Police Officer Ronald Jacobson will once again ride his bike in the Police Unity Tour, a 320-mile trip from East Hanover, N.J., to Washington, D.C. The goal of the tour is to raise awareness for police officers who were killed in the line of duty, and to support the families who tragically lost their loved ones while they were serving and protecting.
To raise money for the families of fallen officers, Jacobson is asking Jamestowners for donations. Donors can send a check to the Police Unity Tour, Rhode Island Contingent, P.O. Box 4103, Middletown, RI 02842. Donations can also be made directly to Jacobson or online at riput.org. Checks should be made out to the Police Unity Tour. The tax ID number is 22-3530541. All donations are tax deductible.
More than 1,500 officers are expected to make the trip this year, 12 of those coming from the Ocean State.
