Darren Doyle, story:
Edmonson County School Resource Officer and Chief Deputy Jeff Brooks is recovering from suffering what physicians are calling a mild heart attack that he suffered Wednesday afternoon at his home, shortly after returning from work at ECHS, according to a statement from Sheriff Shane Doyle.
Sheriff Doyle said Brooks began suffering chest pains yesterday afternoon and was taken to the hospital by Edmonson EMS. He was admitted soon after where it was discovered blocked arteries led to his illness. He is expected to remain in the hospital for 3-5 days.
Brooks has served the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office for 15 years.
"The Brooks family and the Sheriff's Office thank everyone for your prayers and ask that you continue them," said Sheriff Doyle. "Jeff is not only an invaluable asset to our schools and county, but also a dear friend. We hope he recovers quickly and that he's back on the job soon."
