Real-life Angels on Patrol

Jacqui MacConnell

Jacqui MacConnell was an officer with the Phoenix Police Department in 2003, when she was called out to a horrific scene. Two 5 year-old twins had lived caged their entire lives and their 8-year-old brother shared their room. Her reaction was to get involved with the boys’ lives, and she continued to stay in touch as they were placed with a loving foster family.

From that, she founded Angels on Patrol, a nonprofit that provides police officer-initiated support to community members in times of crisis.
