Joe Pollack EOW December 9, 2021

J Pollack

Detective Joe Pollack was born in 1957 and passed away in 2021 from complications due to COVID, which he contracted while in the line of duty. Joe spent 20 years with the NYPD before retiring as a sergeant. He was on his way to Colorado with his family when the 911 terrorist attack happened. He dropped his family off in Colorado and drove back to New York to work alongside his brothers and sisters in blue, digging through the rubble of the World Trade Center towers looking for fallen comrades and civilians.

He finally made it back to Colorado and joined the Sheriff’s Office in 2002. He spent most of his 19 years with us in the Investigations Division. He had a knack for surveillance and always seemed to show up on a scene right when he was needed. Joe played a key role in the trial against the STEM School shooters, testifying as one of the responding officers that tragic day. He is survived by his wife and three children.
