On January 5, 2019, 29-year-old Master Officer Joseph Shinners, a three-year veteran of the Provo Police Department, left his family for his scheduled graveyard shift—never to see them again. Sadly, his fate was to become the first U.S. law enforcement officer to be killed in 2019 and the first Provo Police Officer to be killed in the line of duty in more than 100 years.
Team #JoeShinners and the Provo Police Mutual Aid (PMA) is asking for your support to send selected officers and extended members of the Shinners family to attend the ceremonies in Joe Shinners name during National Police Week 2020. Our goal is to raise $85,000 and we need your help to properly thank not only Master Officer Shinners posthumously, but also those who served with him, loved him and will forever feel the void of his ultimate sacrifice.
