'Mowing With Cops': Alabama Man Invites Cops To Mow Lawns With Him In All 50 States

August 14, 2019

Last year, Rodney Smith Jr. mowed at least one lawn for someone in need in every US state.

He called it the "50 Yards in 50 States Challenge".

For his new challenge, Rodney is inviting police officers to mow with him.

Smith tweeted on Monday that his "Mowing with Cops" tour will start this week.

The goal is to bring the communities together around those who serve and protect us.

Tuesday morning I’ll be heading to FL to start my new 50 State mowing tour called “Mowing with Cops” on Wednesday . The goal is to bring the communities together around those who serve and protect us.

"A lot of people distrust the police," Smith said Tuesday. "But I want them to know the police are there for us — to protect and serve."
