This is terribly sad news. Chief Deputy Porok has a wonderful profile picture that clearly showed a kind spirit and a desire to help people. Without knowing this brave public servant I could tell he truly enjoyed helping people in their time of need. I am retired from a 32 year career in the Fire Service but remain connected to public safety training 911 professionals. My most sincere condolences go out to the Chief’s wife and children as well as the family of public safety personnel who had the privilege of working along side this very brave man.

I am sorry for your families loss. Being a retired law enforcement body u paid the ultimate. Living and have worked in a state that doesn’t recognize what we do or might have to do, and doesn’t have our back. At least you have judicial system and community that will make this savage pay with his life. Fly Blue Angel. God bless.
