Chatham Township Police Ready to Ride for 'Police Unity'

April 8, 2014 at 7:30 PM

CHATHAM, NJ -Three Chatham Township police officers are heading to Washington, D.C. in May as part of the Police Unity Tour.

Officers John Rice, Dave Schaffer, and Sergeant Dan Papa will leave May 9 for Washington, D.C. in remembrance of fellow officers lost in the line of duty. The four-day bicycle ride raises awareness for those officers lost and in addition raises funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum.

Sergeant Papa is dedicating his ride to officer Jon Coutchie from Laguna Beach Police Department in California. Officer Coutchie was killed in a motor vehicle crash while assisting other officers in searching for a suspect.

Schaffer and Papa have been participating in the ride for seven and eight years, respectively, but this is officer Rice’s first year. Each participant must raise $1,800 to ride. All funds raised will help offset trip expenses, with the remainder to be donated to the Memorial and Museum.

Those who would like to donate may do so with a tax deductible check for the “Police Unity Tour” and mail it c/o Chatham Township Police Department, 401 Southern Blvd, Chatham, NJ 07928 Attn: Unity tour riders.

There is also a Scotch tasting fundraiser taking place at Fairmount Country Club on April 21. More information on this event that will benefit the team can be obtained by emailing chathamriders@gmail.com.

Closed Fund Open Mind

Closed-end funds (CEFs) can play an important role in a diversified investment portfolio. They offer benefits similar to those of an open-end mutual fund, but also sport unique advantages.  

Unlike a traditional open-end mutual fund, CEFs have a fixed number of shares available to trade. Their price is not tied to the value of the underlying portfolio. The only way the number of shares ...
