The Hall County Sheriff's Office has announced a memorial fund that will support the wife and children of fallen Deputy Nicolas Blane Dixon.

Donations are now being accepted at Peach State Bank & Trust in Gainesville, and 100% of the donations made to the account will go to Dep. Dixon's family.

"The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is very grateful for the outpouring of support from members of the community, businesses, and other organizations during this time of need," said a statement issued Tuesday morning by the Sheriff's Office.

Donors can make deposits in person or at the bank’s drive-through teller line or night deposit box at the bank's location at 325 Washington Street, just off the downtown Gainesville square.

Donations may be mailed to:

Peach State Bank & Trust
PO Box 290
Gainesville, GA 30503-9835

Any checks should be made payable to the Deputy Nicolas Blane Dixon Memorial Fund.

Dep. Dixon, 28, lost his life while on the job Sunday, July 7. He was shot and killed as he pursued suspects who had been driving a suspected stolen vehicle and were believed to be involved in a series of weekend burglaries. Dixon had been a three-year employee of the Hall County Sheriff's Office.
