In Memory of Officer Jim Capoot











An irreplaceable father, citizen, coach and police officer was gunned down by a fleeing suspect in a bank robbery in Vallejo on Thursday afternoon, November 17, 2011.

A 19-year veteran of Vallejo PD and an ex-marine, Officer Capoot and his wife had taken in the two children of deceased friends this past year, and he coached girls basketball at Vallejo High to a championship victory and hoped to return to coaching.

Officer Capoot was a heroic man with a generous heart who gave his all for our community. This is a heartbreaking tragedy for our city. Our hearts go out to his family, his fellow officers, his friends and all the lives he so deeply touched.

For an excellent local TV report (ABC Channel 10) on the tragic shooting and background on the impact Officer Capoot had on so many lives, go here:
