My Grandfather Labrum was an Officer for Vernal City Police. I remember seeing pictures and hearing the stories about him from my Father and my uncle. The stories were from a long time ago, so times were different and it seemed so exciting and satisfying to be an Officer/Deputy. When I was at College at Utah State University I faced a crossroads. The crossroads for me was to join the military and go through the ROTC program or go through the local Police Academy. I eventually chose the Police Academy. Just before graduation I was picked up by Logan City Police as a Reserve Officer. A few months later I was hired full time by Logan City. I served several years in many different capacities with Logan City. One day I received a phone call from a friend and current Sheriff for Uintah County where I grew up. He told me it was time for me to come home and offered me a job. I told him I was happy in Logan. He told me to come see him when I came to visit my parents and family. During the next trip to Vernal I stopped in to see the Sheriff. Four months later I was home in the Uintah Basin working for Uintah County Sheriff's Office. I worked for this Sheriff for about 1 1/2 years. The Sheriff lost the election and the current Vernal Police Chief asked me to look at Vernal City. At the time wages and benefits were better at Vernal City.
Now I was following in my Grandfathers's footsteps. After several years and many different positions at Vernal City I decided to run for Uintah County Sheriff. Uintah County is my home and my lifestyle. Me and my family love the County and what it has to offer. Hunting, fishing, camping, boating, biking, hiking, and atv rides are just some of the things we enjoy as a family and a community. Being an Officer/Deputy has been and still is very satisfying.
Uintah County is a great place to live and raise a family. I’m happily married and have two sons and one daughter.
