Obituary: The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is saddened by the passing of a valued sergeant
One of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office’s officers died over the weekend, and the department is mourning his loss. Sgt. Kerry Eason died unexpectedly on Sunday, according to officials.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said Eason was “a terrific brother and friend with our office and community” in a Facebook post. The death of Eason was felt by the Polk County Police Department, which described him as “the type of man you aspired to be.”
“Even if he was delivering us mounds of court documentation, we at the County PD loved seeing Kerry roll into our shift change. Working on the road with Kerry was a dream come true. Kerry was always fair in his dealings with others and treated them with respect, even when their conduct did not merit it “On Facebook, the department expressed its dissatisfaction.
“When you had someone acting irrationally and refusing to cooperate, Kerry could come in and sweet talk anyone into cooperating.”
