Georgia Southwestern Police Officer Killed

December 12, 2016

Jody Smith (at right), a police officer at Georgia Southwestern University, was killed last week while providing requested backup to local police officers in Americus, Ga., investigating a domestic violence complaint. An Americus police officer was also killed. A Georgia Southwestern spokesman said police officers there routinely provide backup for cases that do not involve the university when help is requested.

Last month, a Wayne State University police officer was shot and killed on the job.
