Last radio call for Sheriff Perry

St Johns County Sheriff’s Sergeant Cristie Taylor broadcast the “last call” over the police radio for former Sheriff Neil Perry this afternoon; the unanswered call for a man who was tethered to his communications center for over twenty years of law enforcement service.

Sergeant Taylor, who is the daughter of the late O.C. Hayes of St Augustine, provided Historic City News with the words she read in that call:

ALERT TONE; ALERT TONE; ALERT TONE

ST JOHNS 20-61

ST JOHNS 20-61

ST JOHNS 20-61

Sheriff Neil J Perry;

You were a mentor, both professionally and personally, to so many.

You were a brother, a husband, a father, and a grandfather and your strength lives on in your family still here.

Your life was lived dedicated to family and community.

You were a leader that led with vision, courage, honor and integrity.

Sir, your work here is done.

Thank you for all the sacrifices you made and for teaching so many of us to just, “Do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reasons”.

ALERT TONE

This is the last call for 20-61, Sheriff Perry.
Pause

All units; be advised, no response heard

St Johns all units 20-61, Sheriff Neil J Perry is 10-7
