Jackson County law enforcement officers enjoyed a visit from a special group of motorcycle enthusiasts Saturday morning at the Newport Police Department. The riders were participating in the third annual Bikers Backing Our Blue Event. Each of the riders participating in Saturday’s event paid $20 to benefit C.O.P.S., a nonprofit organization that supports families of fallen officers.

The visitors arrived at 8:30 a.m. and stayed for 30 minutes as part of their 5.5 hour drive from Jonesboro to Burns Park in Little Rock where they presented the organization with their funds raised
