Casper Support for Officer Carlson is Refreshing
The show of love and support for Casper Police Officer Jacob Carlson has been nothing short of amazing! From the hundreds of people that showed up to fill Conwell Park just days after the shooting to this new Pepsi display at a local Casper grocery store, the community has stood arm in arm with local law enforcement in hopes for a speedy recovery.
Dozens of fundraisers are popping up all over in support of Officer Carlson and his family after he was shot back on May 6th, 2018. According to updates from the Casper Police Department, Officer Carlson's recovery is in a positive direction and there is still a long road ahead.
Multiple blood drives have had people lined up to make donations while supplying local medical facilities with much needed blood and blood product supplies. Cash donations are pouring in as well! A Go Fund Me account set up to support Officer Carlson's family is at $72k of the requested $75k and still growing.
Local Pepsi distributor Admiral Beverage built this amazing tribute to Officer Carlson and his family as well as a show of support for CPD out of soft drink 12 packs. This show support is currently on display outside of Casper's East side Ridley's for anyone wanting a closer look or to take photos.
