Police Union Gives Back to the Community

The Racine Police Association (RPA) recently received a $10,000 donation from author Paul E. Fallon, who visited Racine during a nationwide tour. While biking across the county in 2015 in search of interesting people, places and inspirational stories, Fallon stopped in Racine to learn more about the community policing philosophy. For additional information on the COP house visit, see the online journal entitled, How Will We Live Tomorrow:

After visiting with active and retired police officers, supervisors and commanders (including the late Chief Richard Polzin who pioneered the local COP effort), Fallon recently made a $10,000 donation to the Racine Police Association to further advance the community policing philosophy locally.
