Officer Allen Jacobs was shot and killed on March 18, 2016 while serving our community here in Greenville, South Carolina.
Jacobs, a 28-year-old officer and decorated Iraq War veteran, leaves behind a pregnant wife and two young sons. Chief Ken Miller said, “losing an officer is difficult. We lose, we hurt, we ache. Our community does too...”
Allen Jacobs exemplified what it meant to be a community cop. Friday nights, he played basketball with troubled youth at the Nicholtown Community Center, not far from where he was fatally shot. He spoke at schools, delivered groceries to widows. He thought of one day becoming an FBI agent. “Protect and serve were written into his DNA,” said Elizabeth Doss, a family friend.
