Palo Alto, CA. Police shout-out to Jacob, ask Officers to help and share

The Palo Alto Police Department Sent out the following message on their Facebook Page along with a request. It read as Follows:

Please join us in giving a big Silicon Valley shout-out to Jacob, a 25-year-old resident of Mississippi with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He is a huge law enforcement supporter.

Jacob’s dad is a police sergeant in Mississippi, and Jacob has taken an interest in collecting law enforcement shoulder patches as a result. Jacob gets excited every day when the mail is delivered because he is hoping to have received more patches.

Well, Jacob’s mom reached out to us and asked if we would send a patch to him. We were more than happy to oblige, and sent him a whole care package of PAPD stuff, much of which he has on display here (note the PAPD Traffic Unit cap!).

Jacob, thanks for supporting law enforcement everywhere. We appreciate it very much. Keep fighting the good fight and know that we’ve got your back the next time you’re in Palo Alto.

For other police agencies interested in helping Jacob out with his patch collection, please send us an e-mail at and we’d be happy to share his contact information with you.
