Jacoby Jones, Ravens Give NOPD Pair of Harleys for Super Bowl Service


A a hometown boy whose mother’s kitchen is his favorite place to eat, Jacoby Jones held true to his roots wih an act of gratitude today. On behalf of the Baltimore Ravens, the wide receiver gave NOPD the gift of two 2013 Harley Davidson FLHP motorcycles.

 

The bikes were purchased by Ravens team owner Steve Bisciotti, and given to the NOPD for their standout service during Super Bowl XLVII, Jones said.

 

A New Orleans native who had his team over to his mama's for dinner before the big game, Jones said he bragged to his teammates about the city's southern hospitality during this years Super Bowl.

 

“When someone takes care of you, you want to be able to give back, and I love New Orleans, it’s my home and it feels good to be able to take care of them for a change.” the Abramson High School grad said.

 

The City of Baltimore and the Ravens franchise wanted to show their appreciation to the NOPD in particular for their exemplary service in providing the week-long 24-hour security detail to them during their stay for the big game.
 

Large events are a typical occurrence here in New Orleans, and this year the NOPD had a perfect storm of sorts when it came to managing not only Mardi Gras, but the immensity of the football's World Championship.  It was quite a daunting and difficult task that the NOPD pulled off seamlessly.

 

“No one manages large events like the NOPD.” Said Mayor Mitch “This is a wonderful gift to the city on behalf of the City of Baltimore and the Ravens in recognition of their hard work.”

 

An integral part of the NOPD force, motorcycles allow officers to better serve the public, from navigating large crowds to patrolling school zones.

 

“These motorcycles are custom-made for the NOPD and are a lasting gift, as they’ll help in our efforts to keep the people of New Orleans safe for many years to come. We can’t thank the Ravens organization enough for their generosity.” Said police superintendent Ronal Serpas

 

These boss hogs are in house now at the NOPD, and ready to be added to fleet. They’re bright and shiny with some killer lights, so you’ll be able to see them coming - just hope it won’t be after you.
