Corporal Eric Dean was recently recognized for two outstanding achievements; the first being the recipient of the Sheriff’s Commendation medal, along with being named the Deputy of the Quarter. Recently, Deputy Dean was instrumental in successfully terminating a high-speed felony pursuit that traveled throughout several counties, and arrested the suspects without incident. Last year Corporal Dean was the deputy that initiated the Robert Willhite robbery investigation, after locating his abandoned vehicle and taking the initiative to look into the matter further. In doing so, Corporal Dean located Mr. Willhite and took measures to initially save the victim’s life. In addition to the above, Corporal Dean is the model professional law enforcement officer and is involved in the training of new deputies. Corporal Dean also volunteers for additional assignments and helps develop programs for both the Sheriff’s Department and County.
