Neighborhood Outreach in Honor of Fallen Officer Jimmy Inn

Stockton - The San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office, in partnership with Bread of Life, performed neighborhood outreach to the block of La Cresta Way where Stockton Police Officer Jimmy Inn tragically lost his life this week.

"This neighborhood witnessed a traumatic event," said District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar. "Yet numerous residents came to the aid of Officer Inn and an 8-year-old boy without any regard to their own safety. The District Attorney's Office wants to make sure they are connected with the appropriate resources and services they deserve."

In addition to the brave Good Samaritan who tackled the suspect and the courageous 8-year-old boy who fought for his freedom, a few neighbors attempted to perform life-saving measures on Officer Inn before paramedics could arrive on scene. "Our hearts are grieving along with the Stockton Police Department for the loss of Officer Inn, and we applaud the actions of this community for their willingness to assist in the midst of a dangerous situation."

Bread of Life, a non-profit who supplies supplemental groceries to communities in need throughout San Joaquin County, has donated approximately 300 boxes of food for the residents on La Cresta Way. The boxes include produce, milk, eggs, cheese, and dry goods like oatmeal, cereal, and canned vegetables. The San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office and the Bureau of Investigations are contributing goods like diapers, formula, toys, toilet paper, and hygiene products to the boxes. Victim-Witness Advocates were also on scene to inform community members of the resources available to victims, witnesses, and good Samaritans for counseling and grief assistance.

A memorial fund for Officer Jimmy Inn has been established to provide support for his family during this tragic time. The fund can be found here. For more information on the services provided by the San Joaquin County Victim-Witness team, visit sjgov.org/DA.
