Jenkins was killed in the line of duty March 27 along U.S. Highway 93 when he stopped to check on a motorist.

Troopers can wear the patches on the right shoulder of their duty uniform for a period of one year until the conclusion of National Police Week 2021 in Washington, D.C. That’s when Jenkins’ name will be added to the National Law Enforcement Memorial commemorating his sacrifice and service.

Patches are available to the public through the Nevada Injured Police Officers Fund for $10 plus shipping, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Jenkins Family.
