Steven Green - Law Enforcement - Alabama

Police Officer Steven Green, age 36, died in the line of duty on February 3, 2012, in Mobile, Alabama.

Steven was a member of Mobile Police Department. He had 1 year and 8 months of service.

Steven was stabbed to death by a prisoner outside of the Mobile County Metro Jail at approximately 3:50 p.m.

The subject had been arrested by an off duty police officer earlier in the day when he attempted to rob a dollar store. He had approached the store's checkout counter, demanded money, then lit the counter on fire after spraying it with lighter fluid. An off duty officer shopping in the store tackled him and took him into custody. 

He was processed at the police station and was being transported to the county jail by Officer Green when he attacked and fatally stabbed Officer Green outside of the jail complex. The subject then stole the officer's service weapon and patrol car. Other officers pursued the suspect to a home off of Dauphin Island Parkway where he engaged them in a shootout, wounding one officer in the arm. The suspect suffered a fatal gunshot wound during the exchange of shots.
Jesus, pray for Steven

Steven is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his mother; his wife and his three small children.

Friends describe Steven as a quality, young man. 

Police Officials stated that being a police officer is what Steven enjoyed doing, that he was a one of their best officers and that he was well respected. 

Pray for all who die in the line of duty. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Steven Green is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
