Greer, SC ---- The Greer Police Department is hosting our first annual “Fallen Officers Memorial Fund Pancake Dinner” today at Eggs Up Grill located at 805 West Wade Hampton Blvd from 4 pm to 7 pm. Tickets for this dinner must be purchased by 2 pm today. There are only 43 tickets left for community members to support this fundraiser. At the Pancake Dinner, officers and staff from our agency will be serving those who have donated to the Fallen Officers Memorial Fund.

This fundraiser was organized in an effort to raise additional money for the Upstate Fallen Officers Fund which in the past has been funded solely through the annual charity softball tournament that the Greer Police Department hosts in August of each year. This year’s annual softball tournament will be held August 25th and 26th at Century Park in Greer, SC.

Since the inception of the Upstate Fallen Officers Memorial Fund the Greer Police Department has been able to donate $21,000 to fallen officer’s families in the Upstate. We have partnered with the Gallagher’s Army Fallen Officer Fund which matches every donation we have made doubling our impact to the families of fallen officers ($42,000 donated to date). The families of the following fallen officers have received donations from this fund:

Deputy Roger Rice Jr.                   Laurens County Sheriff’s Office                (EOW 7/14/11)

Officer Allen Jacobs                      Greenville City Police Department              (EOW 3/18/16)

Officer Jason Harris                      Spartanburg Police Department               (EOW 4/13/17)

Deputy Devin Hodges                  Anderson County Sheriff’s Office              (EOW 6/01/17)

Trooper D. Keith Rebman            SC Highway Patrol                                      (EOW 10/24/17)

This is a great time for community members and businesses in the Upstate to interact with our officers and learn more about our efforts to support the families of law enforcement officers who are killed in the line of duty.
