[ARCHIVED] Peoria County Sheriff's Office Mourns Loss of Correctional Officer Camron Passie

Camron Passie

The following statement was officially released by Peoria County Sheriff Brian Asbell on Sunday, December 5, 2021:

I am devastated to report the Peoria County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the unexpected death of one of our own. Corrections Officer Camron "Cam" Passie, 25, passed away (died) earlier today (Sunday, December 5, 2021) from complications related to COVID-19. Officer Passie had been an employee of the Sheriff's Office since Dec. 31, 2018. He last worked on Thursday, Dec. 2 when he was sent home after testing positive for the virus. 

The jail was placed on outbreak status last week due to multiple detainees and employees testing positive for the virus. 

I am deeply saddened for Cam’s family, friends and anyone who had the opportunity to meet him. I have personally known Camron since he was a young teenager, as he grew up in Brimfield and showed interest in law enforcement. 

Over the years, I have mentored Camron and can only say I have a hole in my heart right now. The Peoria County Sheriff’s Office and our community have lost a special young man, but I am certain Heaven has gained our team member. Please keep Camron and his family in all your prayers.
