The North Carolina PBA and the PBF establish fund for fallen Asheville PD Sergeant Jonathan Rikard

The Police Benevolent Foundation (PBF) and the North Carolina Division of the Southern States PBA would like to express their deepest sympathy and compassion to the family, friends and fellow law enforcement officers of Asheville Police Department Sergeant Jonathan Rikard.  Sergeant Rikard died on Wednesday, December 9, 2015.  Sergeant Rikard had served with the Asheville Police Department since June of 2003 and is survived by his wife, Nicole, and son, Tucker. 
He was a beloved officer who will be missed tremendously by the Asheville Police Department, as well as other surrounding law enforcement agencies.  Sergeant Rikard’s brothers and sisters in blue are rallying behind his family in these difficult times. It is with a heavy heart that the NCPBA and the PBF ask for the help of the community, both locally and nationally, to aid in their efforts to provide much needed support for this sergeant’s beneficiaries in their time of need.
An account has been established under the Police Benevolent Foundation entitled the “Officer Jonathan Rikard Memorial Fund.” Donations can be made here.  All donations made to this memorial fund are tax-deductible, and 100% of the money will go to Sergeant Rikard’s beneficiaries. The PBF is asking everyone to please pass this information along to friends and family. Sergeant Rikard’s family will need all of us to rally behind them in these hard times.
