Two deputies honored by Sheriff’s Department

The Kay County Sheriff’s Department would like to honor a few of our own. Deputy Justin Caffey (left) and Deputy Wesley Bear.

In December 2017, Deputies Caffey and Bear were on duty and overheard radio traffic from the Ponca City Communications Center about an ambulance being dispatched to a rollover accident with injuries west of Ponca City. Caffey and Bear were near the reported area of the crash. When they arrived on the scene, both immediately began life saving efforts on one subject that had been severely injured in the crash. Caffey and Bear administered CPR until the emergency medical staff arrived.

According to witness statements, it is our belief that without the efforts of both Deputy Caffey and Deputy Bear, the victim would not have had time to see their family before succumbing to their injuries.

“It is this type of dedication and effort that makes us proud to call these two young men Kay County Deputies,” Sheriff Steve Kelley said. “Thank you again, Deputies, for your fine work.”

Both Deputies received Commendations Awards from Sheriff Kelley and Undersheriff Grigsba.
