The law enforcement community is rallying around Clinton police officer Jeremy McInnis, who lost his 13-year-old son in a tragic car crash this past weekend.

McInnis’ son, Jeremiah, was killed in a crash near the intersection of Hanging Moss Road and Northside Circle. McInnis’ blue family is trying to collect funds to help defray funeral costs for the officer’s family.

A post circulating on Facebook from various officers, including those at Clinton and Jackson police departments states, “By all accounts, Jeremy was a very proud and devoted father to his baby. Due to the suddenness of this event, I think we could best help by assisting with raising funds for a proper burial. Jeremy WOULD NEVER ask for help but would give you the shirt off his back.”

“Jeremy was the best father a kid could have,” wrote friend Noah McCraw. “Any help with donations would be greatly appreciated for Jeremy and his family. If you are unable to do that, it is completely understandable but please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers.”

Donations towards funeral costs are being collected at Clinton Police Department, and more information can be obtained by calling Captain Josh Frazier at (601) 924-5252. Walk-in donations will be accepted at any time.
