CORDELE, Ga. — Daryl Smallwood, the Peach County deputy that was shot Sunday night, was previously a deputy in Crisp County.
Crisp County Sheriff Billy Hancock said Smallwood was a deputy with his department four five years before moving to Peach County last November.
Hancock described Smallwood as a dedicated and knowledgeable officer.
“I never had complaint on Deputy Smallwood,” Hancock said. “When we was here he provided a service to the community in a very professional manner. He was always positive. He was always upbeat and he took his job seriously.”
Warner Robins Police were also on scene Sunday night, along with multiple other law enforcement agencies.
Warner Robins Chief of Police Brett Evans said it was a huge display of officer support.
Dep. Smallwood is currently on life support at a Macon hospital.
