Please donate to help Deputy McCowan's family!
The Smoky Mountain chapter of the Tennessee Police Benevolent Association and the Police Benevolent Foundation are asking for your assistance in financial support to the family of Deputy Greg McCowan of the Blount County Sheriff's Office.
On February 8th, McCowan was shot and killed during a traffic stop that he and a fellow deputy had initiated. During the stop, the driver opened fire on the two deputies. McCowan was fatally injured in the encounter, and the other deputy was shot in the leg. She was able to return fire as the suspect fled on foot. She survived the shooting.
McCowan has been a deputy with the sheriff's office since 2020. In April 2021, he received a lifesaving award for his part in saving the life of a man who was trapped in a burning vehicle.
He is survived by his children, Cayley and Cayden, granddaughter Ella, his mother and father, and his fiancé Leah.
Please help in providing support for this fallen hero's family.
100% of the funds received by the PBF will go to Deputy McCowan's family.
