BROWARD COUNTY – A former Broward Sheriff’s Office detention deputy is in critical condition after being shot by SWAT team members during a 3 1/2-hour standoff in Oakland Park on Thursday night.

Kelly Garrick, 41, was in critical condition at North Broward Medical Center on Friday evening after being taken back to the operating room earlier in the day, her sister, Trish Sealey, of Fairfax, Va., said in a telephone interview.

Garrick, who worked for the Sheriff’s Office from June 6, 1997, to Oct. 26, 2002, is facing five felony charges including trafficking oxycodone and withholding information from doctors, according to court records.

Garrick’s troubles began when she was injured on the job by an inmate, said Sealey, 45, a critical care nurse. Garrick, the second-youngest of seven sisters, suffered a concussion and nerve damage to her dominant hand and arm and was prescribed pain medication, Sealey said.

“She ultimately got addicted to the pain medication,” Sealey said. “It led to her demise, a slow demise and fall from grace. It’s just tragic.”

    Bump onegoodcop and glockarmorer220, Sad situation, sorry the outcome turned out the way it did, for her to get the help she needed. Hopefully this will help someone else who needs help to get it before it gets this extreme.

    Unfortunately she won't get the help she needs while incarcerated. Hence the recidivism rate. Just a cell.

    We all have issues, for some of us its worse than others. Asking for help for a LEO is like giving up. But we all need to admit that we are not perfect and we do sometimes need BACKUP.........Lets keep an eye on each other out there.

    This is so true and could not have been said any better. One dillema that we may face is this. If we see a brother or sister that needs some assistance but they will not seek it...we need to report it to our command staff. There may be a feeling of betrayal, but reporting a fellow officer for their benefit will make him/her and you that much stronger in the long run.
