GLENDALE, Ariz. (KSAZ) - After spending weeks in the ICU, Glendale Police Sergeant Kent Livingston, who was shot on duty while trying to arrest a fugitive earlier this month, has been re-admitted to the hospital.
Despite the emotional roller coaster of recovery, the community wanted to come together for the man behind the badge.
"Kent's a really good guy. He's been with us for well over 20 years, just a hard working, good supervisor, passionate about his work, a good family man," said Sergeant Rich Stringer with the Glendale Police Department.
Members of the community came out for several hours today to wash cars, sell T-shirts and serve up food all in effort to not only raise funds, but to show the Livingston family that they're not alone on the road to recovery.
Officer Tiffany Smith says she hopes support for Sgt. Livingston only continues to grow.
"We're really out here trying to raise funds for him, for his family to make them whole again," Smith said.
In addition to the car wash, the community has also set up an email for donations at Lodge12GlendaleFOP@gmail.com.
