Detective Kristen Hearne was shot and killed as she and another
officer responded to reports of a stolen vehicle.

As the officers arrived at the location they were ambushed by a male
subject. Detective Hearne was fatally wounded after being shot
multiple times. The second officer was also struck and was wounded,
but is expected to make a full recovery.

A female subject was taken into custody at the scene. The male subject
fled the scene but was arrested a short time later after a massive
manhunt and charged with her murder.

Detective Hearne had served with Polk County Police Department for
five years. She is survived by her husband, who is also an officer and
3-year-old son.

Words cannot express the sadness that is felt for this warrior. A son will now grow up not knowing his mother, but knowing about her; a husband who also serves & protects will have to move on raising his son without her; a department has lost a coworker and friend, the Thin Blue Line has lost a sister, a family has lost a daughter.  

In tragedies such as this, unexpected expenses arise (a two-income family now becomes one; funeral, counseling, meals, childcare, etc.) and we want to help offset it in the months to come.  Any amount will help and be appreciated.  **Funds will be sent directly to her husband, Matt*
