Sheriff Scott Steward recently announced the appointment of Deputy Andrew Palmer to the department’s patrol division. Deputy Palmer was reassigned from the Park County Detention Facility and will begin his new duties immediately patrolling out of the Cody District. He replaces a former deputy who resigned, therefore there is no additional cost to the county.

“Patrol deputies are primarily responsible for providing public safety by maintaining order, responding to emergencies, protecting people and property, enforcing motor vehicle and criminal laws, and promoting good community relations,” said Sheriff Steward. “I have the utmost confidence that Deputy Palmer will serve the citizens of Park County in the manner to which they have come to expect; with pride, compassion, and professionalism.”

Deputy Palmer who is originally from State College, Pennsylvania, began his employment with the sheriff’s office in March of 2016 when he was employed as a deputy in the detention facility. Before joining the Park County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Palmer spent two years with the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office where he also served as a detention deputy.
