The UC Berkeley police officer who famously helped rescue kidnap victim Kaycee Dugard is suing her former employer, claiming she was wrongfully denied approval to carry a concealed firearm after she retired on medical disability.
Allison “Ally” Jacobs became a hero after her intuition helped lead to the capture of Phillip Garrido, the sex offender who held Dugard captive for 18 long years. Jacobs reportedly suffered an on-duty injury about a year later and she accepted a disability retirement in April of 2013.
When she submitted an application for a concealed carry permit, which are available to all retired cops in California, it was rejected.
