LEGACY MEMORIAL ACCOUNT ESTABLISHED FOR SPD OFFICER LEXI HARRIS
FUNDS WILL GO TO SUPPORT COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS AND FAMILY
(Seattle, WA) — A memorial fund to honor fallen Seattle Police Officer Alexandra “Lexi” Harris has been established by the Seattle Police Officers Guild. The Officer Lexi Harris Benevolent Account will be used to continue her legacy of compassion, community service and support for and organizations in her hometown.
In the early morning hours on Sunday, June 13, 2021, Harris stopped to assist motorists involved in a multi-vehicle collision on Interstate 5 in Seattle. While out of her car rendering assistance, Lexi was tragically struck by another passing motorist and killed.
Born and raised in Seattle, Lexi served her community out of SPD’s West Precinct, Bicycle Patrol, Wellness Unit and Community Response Group. Her passion revolved around her family, friends, martial arts, and improving community relations whether on or off-duty.
Lexi was a dedicated Seattle Police officer who loved her work and was committed to bringing her considerable thoughtfulness and vision to the challenges of serving the community through compassionate policing. She also was a daughter, sister, a partner and “mother-by-choice” and for whom family was paramount. Her sudden death leaves a hole in the fabric of the lives of her family, coworkers, and friends.
One hundred percent of donations to the Officer Lexi Harris Benevolent Account will go to provide support for her family and organizations that can help carry on Lexi’s mission of community service. While no specific programs have been identified, the types of organizations that Lexi worked with throughout her life would benefit. They could include programs that support youth fitness, women and girls, leadership, guidance, and training, as well as organizations that promote trust and understanding between the police and the community.
Lexi’s always looked for the good in everyone and she never stopped giving, mentoring, and serving, whether with her family or people in crisis on the street.
