Officer Samuel Yoh of the Ozark, Alabama Police Department was shot in the line of duty after responding to a call on December 12, 2019.
Officer Yoh is currently in critical condition at a regional hospital. (We hope to keep this section of the campaign description updated if any conditions change)
Known as a lover of laughter, food, Ohio State Football, and public service, Officer Yoh has been an officer for 18 years. He joined the OPD in March of 2019. Officer Yoh and his wife, Missy, have a blended family with 3 children, ages 11,13, and 15. They are expecting a baby girl, due in February 2020.
Even if he recovers as well as planned, Yoh has a long road to recovery ahead. This family will need monetary support for medical bills and family expenses during this time. The baby’s due date is right around the corner!
The reason I am starting this campaign is because in the few months we’ve known them, they have always embodied a strong spirit and willingness to be help out and be part of the team. He and Missy have stated that they feel they found their home and family in Ozark. Sam and Missy are each other’s Rock, and with him down, I feel that we as a community can be part of that team. Team Yoh!
