SAPD wife and minister shares amid recent police shootings

Allison Uribe, a resident of San Antonio, has taken it upon herself to address the concerns and challenges faced by spouses of first responders through the creation of her own ministry. In light of recent events involving shootings of police officers, Uribe’s efforts have become all the more significant.

Having received text messages from concerned acquaintances, Uribe realized that her sentiments are shared amongst others. She is not alone in her fear and apprehension surrounding the current situation. The wave of shootings involving police officers that have occurred since August 24th has deeply disturbed many spouses, including Uribe, who is married to a member of the San Antonio Police Department.

According to the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD), there have been a total of five shootings resulting in injuries to five officers. In addition, three suspects involved in these incidents have tragically lost their lives at the hands of the SAPD. Uribe expresses her heartfelt sympathy to the families affected by these events, acknowledging the tremendous difficulties they must now endure.

The recent shootings have shed light on the dangers associated with law enforcement duties, emphasizing the constant worry and anxiety that plague the families of those employed in this line of work. Recognizing the unique set of challenges faced by spouses of first responders, Uribe took it upon herself to establish Wives on Duty Ministries, a ministry dedicated to providing assistance and support to these individuals in navigating their specific obstacles.

Having been involved in ministering to the police force since 2007, Uribe admits that this particular situation presents uncharted territory. She does not claim to have all the answers or know precisely what to say. Uribe’s husband, a veteran of 21 years within the force, has personal connections with some of the injured officers, further intensifying the emotional toll on their family.

Despite the anxiety brought about by these shootings, Uribe remains steadfast in her unwavering support for the San Antonio Police Department. Recognizing the potential gravity of the situation, she poses the chilling question of whether or not they might one day lose an officer. The fear of losing her husband, or the spouse of another individual, looms heavily in her thoughts. Nonetheless, Uribe is determined to remain outspoken and provide her constant support to the police department, and she remains hopeful that the community at large will rally behind them.

Uribe firmly believes that the community of San Antonio does not embody the violence and chaos witnessed in recent events. By standing together, she envisions a future where the true spirit of San Antonio shines through, not overshadowed by these disturbing incidents.

In her quest to bring attention to the concerns faced by spouses of first responders and the importance of supporting law enforcement, Uribe continues to fight for a safer and stronger community. Her efforts are poised to make a lasting impact and provide much-needed assistance to those who find themselves in similar circumstances.
