Boy Follows Dream To Protect Police Officers
Jacen Troxell is an eight year old boy with a big heart. Despite his young age, he has already made strides to protect police officers.
As the son of a police officer, Jacen knows the constant danger of his dad’s job. His dad had been shot once before; his dad’s friend was shot and killed. So Jacen decided to stand up. With the help of his mom, he started a website to raise money to protect police officers. He has now raised over $13,000 and all of that money is used for protective plates that are inserted into bullet proof vests that give officers better protection.
In the video, Jacen says that police officers are “good people who want to protect other people.” In that statement, he could very well be describing himself. Keep up the amazing work, Jacen!
