On this #VeteransDay, we pause to recognize all the men and women who have proudly served our nation with courage and distinction
Our prayers are with the loved ones and colleagues of Pierce County Sheriff's Department Deputy Daryl Shuey. Deputy Shuey passed away suddenly while on duty today
We are heartbroken to report that one of our deputies passed away this morning while working on patrol in the Parkland-Spanaway area.
At 6:16 a.m. a passerby called 911 to report that a deputy was found unresponsive in a parking lot in the 14900 block of Pacific Ave. S. Deputies and medics rushed to the scene and attempted CPR prior to the deputy being transported to nearby hospital. Shortly after 7:00 a.m. we were notified that our deputy had passed away from what appears to be a medical emergency.
The deputy is Daryl Shuey #342, who has served with our department as a Deputy Sheriff since 1994. Deputy Shuey is 57 years old, a proud husband and father, and a beloved member of our department. He worked dayshift central patrol and had just started his shift when the incident occurred.
Our chaplains, peer support, and Sheriff Bomkamp are with the Shuey family at this incredibly difficult time. We are asking all of you to keep Daryl, his family, and our deputies in your hearts today as we grieve his sudden passing.
Wishing the U.S. Marine Corps a happy 245th birthday. Thank you to all who have served #HappyBirthdayMarines
Our thoughts & prayers are with the family, friends and colleagues of Harris County Sheriff's Office Deputy Johnny Tunches
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Deputy Johnny Tunches, 56, who died on Tuesday after a courageous battle against COVID-19.
He is the third Sheriff's Office deputy to die after contracting COVID-19. Sergeant Raymond Scholwinski died on May 6 and Deputy Juan Menchaca died on June 13.
Deputy Tunches, 56, had been hospitalized for almost a month after contracting COVID-19. He was a 29-year veteran of HCSO and his most recent assignment was as a Contract Deputy in District 2. He began his service with the Harris County Sheriff's Office in 1991 and worked at the Inmate Processing Center (IPC).
“Our Sheriff’s Office family mourns the death of Deputy Johnny Tunches,” Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said. “Deputy Tunches served the people of Harris County with distinction. We were proud to call him our partner, and our friend. He will be missed terribly, and our condolences go out to his family and all those whose lives he touched.”
Deputy Tunches is survived by his wife and his three daughters.
Funeral arrangements for Deputy Tunches are pending.

Our prayers are with the family and colleagues of Greenville County Master Deputy Conley Jumper
(GREENVILLE, SC) – We are saddened to announce the passing of Master Deputy Conley Jumper. MD Jumper passed away as a result of an incident that occurred on I-85N, earlier this afternoon.
Master Deputy Jumper is survived by his wife, Sarah and his daughter, Cat. As Sheriff Lewis mentioned in our press conference earlier, please keep their family in your thoughts and prayers.
Just before 3:00pm a deputy with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office initiated a traffic stop northbound on I-85, near White Horse Road. At some point during the stop, at least one of the occupants engaged deputies in a physical altercation and a struggle ensued. During the struggle, the suspect’s vehicle accelerated and ultimately collided with a tractor trailer. While the exact sequence of events is unclear at this time, we do know that another deputy’s patrol car also collided with the suspect’s. In all, three deputies were transported to the hospital along with two individuals from the suspect vehicle. Master Deputy Jumper succumbed to his injuries and was ultimately pronounced deceased at the hospital. The other two deputies are expected to recover as are the occupants from the suspect vehicle.
SLED, who is working alongside the SC Highway Patrol, is investigating the incident in its entirety and all further questions pertaining to the investigation should be deferred to them.
Regarding the tragic loss, Sheriff Hobart Lewis had this to say, “Conley Jumper was a man of integrity and passion. When I say passion, I mean the man was as dedicated to the job as they come. He was larger than life, both literally and figuratively. At over 6’4” he was a gentle giant who always wore a contagious smile. I say Master Deputy Jumper, but what the record should reflect from this day forward is Sergeant Conley Jumper. His uncanny leadership will be remembered by all. Sergeant Jumper served our agency and the men and women of Greenville County for 28 years. He spent his last years on the GCSO Interdiction team where he received numerous accolades, including multiple distinguished service awards and the prestigious Russ Sorrow Award. Jumper was an officer who embodied the true essence of a public servant. He had more certifications and instructed more classes than anyone can count and that’s because he always strived to be the best deputy he could be. He was a tireless worker and loving friend and he had a heart of gold. He will be missed dearly by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.”
Sergeant Conley Jumper, End of Watch: October 20, 2020.

Fulton County Sheriff’s Office mourns the loss of two outstanding deputies
Two Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies were killed in traffic accident near Augusta, Georgia this morning. The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the accident. The two deputies were on duty in a patrol car on Interstate 20 in Columbia County near Grovetown, Georgia. The fatal accident claimed the lives of Deputy Anthony White, a seven year veteran who joined the agency in December 2012 and Deputy Kenny Ingram who would have marked his 15-years of service in October. Both were assigned to the Law Enforcement Division of the Sheriff’s Office. No one else was in the vehicle.
Chaplains who volunteer with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office are offering grief counseling to the deputies’ family members and colleagues.
Sheriff Ted Jackson said, “These men had a profound sense of duty throughout their distinguished careers with this agency and for us and this county, the loss of these deputies is devastating.”
The deputies were on their way to pick up an inmate to transfer to the Fulton County Jail. No additional details are available at this time.
