It is my honor to announce that the Fraternal Order of Police, Jerrard F. Young DC Lodge #1 is celebrating the 110th Anniversary of the first female law enforcement officer in the United States during National Police Week 2020. Her name was Alice Stebbins Wells from the Los Angeles Police Department, where she started on September 12, 1910.
Sadly, sixty-four years and eight days later, our first female Law Enforcement Officer paid the ultimate sacrifice on September 20, 1974. Her name was Gail Adrienne Cobb of the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department.
Because our Ladies began their law enforcement career in the year 1910, the Jack Daniel’s Fundraising Committee has authorized the creation of not only one limited edition Commemorative Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel bottle, but two additional bottles that are described below.
The Commemorative and Collectible bottle of Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Select will have the two badges of each lady (described above) etched onto one side of the bottle with “Honoring the Women of Law Enforcement”, and the other side will have the DC Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #1 National Police Week Badge on it. To say this bottle looks amazing as a stand-alone piece is an understatement. The quality of these etchings on all the bottles shows how delicate those at Jack Daniel’s etched these bottles and how much time they took to produce. There are only 600 of these bottles that were done.
These commemorative bottles are $80 each. You can order one or more using the PayPal button below. If you want the bottles shipped to you, there will be a $25 fee added at checkout for each bottle and you will be asked to provide your address. You must be 21 or over to purchase and if shipping to your residence, you must be over 21 to receive. Please note, we cannot ship to a P.O. Box or APO.
As you can see, we have changed a few things by limiting the number of bottles yet expanding the opportunity of bottles to help with your collection, as well as Honoring the Women of Law Enforcement during National Police Week 2020 at Tent City, located at RFK Stadium.
Just to put out a special tease: this year, Jack Daniel’s also will be bringing in the super amazing JDX Trailer, which is a 53” tractor trailer providing attendees with the taste, feel and flavors of Lynchburg and the Jack Daniel’s Distillery. Jack Daniel’s is again a major supporter of law enforcement and all First Responders so giving back is just second nature to them.
See y’all soon!
