The City of Spartanburg is mourning the loss of a fallen officer.

Master Patrol Officer Jason Harris died on Thursday after suffering several injuries from a crash on Tuesday.

On Friday, a squad car was on display as a memorial. A blood drive was also held in his honor.

The department says officer Harris was responding to a burglary call Tuesday night on his motorcycle when it collided with a vehicle on Union Street. He later died from his injuries.

“Officer Harris has been a loyal and valued member of the Spartanburg Police Department and will be greatly missed," Chief Thompson said in post on the department's Facebook page. "Officer Harris has served our community well and we appreciate the sacrifices that he and his family has made to our community. We best honor Officer Harris’ memory and the memory of other fallen law enforcement professionals by continuing our service to the communities we vowed to protect.”

Harris was a member of the department's SWAT team, Motorcycle Unit, K-9 Tracking Team, Downtown Bicycle Unit, Housing Complex Team and was a Gang Investigator.
