Greg Jackson, of Jackson’s MMA, praised law enforcement for their heroic actions, “Like our entire community, we were shocked by the events that unfolded on Saturday.

Hopkins, an officer and athlete, is known for being caring and compassionate. She has spent her life helping others, now it’s our time to help her.”

She represents all that is good in the ranks of our law enforcement community.” Hartstock also thanked the community for their outpouring of support, “We can’t thank everyone enough for the incredible support for our officers and deputies, especially Jackson’s MMA and their fighters for their willingness to help Robin.”
