The job the police officers do every day is so dangerous! Especially with thugs like the one who killed Officer Jacobs. This is horrible and shows what a risk it is for these cops to go out on the streets every day. A GO FUND ME has been set up for Officer Jacobs’ family because he has two young children and a wife who expecting their third child.
“The officer is a decorated Iraq war veteran, a father of two and his wife is pregnant, with the third child due in July, the department said in a somber remembrance. He’d been with the department for nearly four years.”
Please consider giving what you can to this family and please pray for them.
