$165,000 Raised for Officer Rodriguez and His Family

Officer Rodriguez & Family

In June of 2020, Officer Rodriguez was with his SWAT team, responding to an emergency call when a drunk driver struck their van. Several of the officers were trapped in the van and Jonathan suffered a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down, forcing him to retire in September of 2021 at the young age of 30.  On September 24th, in conjunction with the Cleveland Police SWAT Unit, Blue Line Unlimited hosted the Jonathan Rodriquez Benefit in Parma to support Officer Rodriguez and his family.  As a result, they were blessed, honored, and humbled to present Jon a check for $165,000.  The Cleveland Police Foundation was proud to be a sponsor of this amazing event.
