Sheriff Scott Steward announced recently the appointment of Deputy Brett Tillery to the department’s patrol division. Deputy Tillery was reassigned from the Park County Detention Facility and will begin his new duties immediately patrolling out of the Cody District. He replaces long-time Deputy Mike Pennell who recently retired.
“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 Tillery will serve the citizens of Park County in the manner to which they have come to expect; with pride, compassion, and professionalism.”
Brett has been with the Park County Sheriff’s Office since February of 2014 where he served as a deputy in the detention facility. He was born in California but his parents moved to Wyoming immediately after. He has lived in Wyoming ever since and moved to the Cody area in 2005.
Brett has attended Northwest College in Powell where he earned an associate’s degree. He currently resides in Cody with his wife. They are expecting their first child in March. Brett’s father, Rick is currently an officer with the Cody Police Department.
