During last month’s blizzard, sheriff’s deputies, dispatchers and search & rescue (SAR) personnel remained extremely busy responding to and getting help to those in need whenever and wherever they could and keeping residents up to date on current road closures through their social media accounts.
During this week-long weather event and the days surrounding it, deputies investigated 17 motor vehicle crashes and responded to over 60 reports of stuck or stranded motorists.  Even one of their own deputies became stuck trying to assist another motorist (see photo).  He was forced to abandon his vehicle for several days until the county road crews could get to it.  Deputies also checked on the welfare of a dozen county residents during the storm.
SAR personnel were mobilized to assist in several incidents including a group of snowmobilers stuck on the Chief Joseph Highway, evacuation of a deceased hunter in the Crandall area and the evacuation of another hunter northwest of Powell due to a medical emergency.  They also assisted with a ground search for a missing elderly female in the Valley View Subdivision.
As winter continues to settle in over the county, with predicted snow and frigid temperatures, The Park County Sheriff’s Office urges everyone to exercise caution and take necessary steps to stay safe.

It is with heavy hearts that the Park County Sheriff’s Office announces the death of retired and long-time deputy Mike Pennell, who succumbed to heart related issues on January 8th at his home in Naylor, Georgia.  Mike retired from the sheriff’s office in January of 2016 after nearly 17 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Park County.  Previously Mike served as a deputy with the Pinellas County, Florida Sheriff’s Office as a canine handler and briefly with the Greybull, Wyoming police department before joining the Park County Sheriff’s Office.   He was also a veteran of the United States Army Calvary where he received numerous awards and commendations for his service to our country.  Mike leaves behind a son, Russell who lives in Tampa, Florida.  There will be no services.  Cards and condolences may be addressed to the Park County Sheriff’s Office, 1402 River View Drive, Cody, WY 82414.
