âRyan is the sheriff’s sheriff,â Cache County Sheriff Chad Jensen, president of the Utah Sheriffs Association, said in the announcement. âHe’s completely altruistic. There have been several occasions when many of us have called and the first words out of her mouth are, “How much do you need and where do you need it?” When we had the riots in Salt Lake, he stood with the endangered line staff to protect the city and private property.
Other Weber County winners of the association’s 12 awards this year were Deputy Chief Aaron Perry, Prison Commander of the Year; Cpl. Landry Roskelly, Correctional Officer of the Year; and Reed Richards, special recognition.
The group credited Perry for “his ability to change, rebalance, assess and re-focus at any time during the COVID crisis,” Jensen’s announcement said. âChief Perry also spearheaded the conversion of nursing staff employed by the county to a full-service medical contract. “
Roskelly was honored for his leadership in prison during a period of more than 100 COVID-19 infections in cell blocks throughout 2020.
Richards was recognized upon retirement from the county as an assistant county attorney who worked closely with the sheriff’s office. Richards was a former elected Weber County attorney, ran as Utah attorney general, and was a founding member of the Sheriffs’ Association.
