At the conclusion of the procession, as a lead unit, Captain Jakub will be one of the keynote speakers on the National Memorial dais along with several other Washington dignitaries.
 
Sheriff Gaines stated “It is a real honor for Warren County and our Department to have Captain Jakub selected from all the officers across the Country to lead and speak at this national law enforcement event in Washington.”
