LONG-TIME DEPUTY RETIRES

Long time Park County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Rose will retire from the force on March 31, 2015 after serving over 30 years with the department.  Aaron began his career in 1984 as a deputy in the county detention facility.  After 15 months, he moved into the patrol division where he’s been ever since.  Born in Cody, Aaron and his family resided in the Grass Creek area of Hot Springs County until he was 21.  At that time, his family moved to Cody where he has resided since. 

Aaron admits that he has mixed feeling about leaving the sheriff’s office.  “I’ve had a really good career,” Aaron commented.  “It’s been very rewarding and a lot of fun.  Over the years, I’ve met so many nice people and that’s what I’ll miss the most.  But, it was time to move on and I’m excited about my new job.”  Aaron will be joining the Park County Engineers Office as the new Operations Coordinator on April 1st. 

Aaron is married with two grown children and two grown step-children.  The Park County Sheriff’s family congratulates Deputy Aaron Rose on his well-deserved retirement, wishes him continued success and most of all, thanks him for his service.
