Frankie Mae Shivers

Officer Shivers was shot and killed with her own weapon by a suicidal female. Officer Shivers and her training officer responded to a traffic accident in which a deranged female had struck the back of a patrol unit, which burst into flames. As Officer Shivers' partner assisted the injured officer, she and another officer attempted to pull the deranged driver out of the car, which was on fire. As Officer Shivers attempted to pull the female from the burning car the suspect gained control of her weapon and shot her in between the panels of her vest. The suspect was shot and killed by other officers when she started firing at them.

Officer Shivers was a recent academy graduate and had only been with the agency for nine months.

Aunt Frankie,

Thinking of you a lot in the past couple of years. You are my step aunt and I can remember attending your unbelievably beautiful homegoing service when I was just 10 years old. I remember your husband, daughters and of course Ms. Effie your mom. I could not appreciate your bravery and courage then and how much of a sacrifice you made so that another may live. When I see the pictures on the NY news stations that show another beautiful officer killed-Officer Familia I can't help but think of you. You are loved. May you continue to rest sweetly in your heavenly home.

With love and appreciation- Your niece,


Yevette Carmichael
