Penrod promoted to sergeant


Mayor Jack Thomas last week oversaw a ceremony at the Marsac Building marking the promotion of Rick Penrod to a sergeant’s position in the Park City Police Department.

Penrod had been a detective. He competed for the promotion against five candidates from within the Police Department. There was a sergeant’s position open after a retirement late in 2014.

The three stripes on Penrod’s sleeve denote his rank as a sergeant.

In a release, the Police Department said Penrod has been a member of the Park City force since 2009. He worked for the Utah Department of Public Safety for 10 years prior to his hiring in Park City.

He graduated high school in Provo and holds a degree from Utah Valley State College. Penrod speaks English and Spanish. He and his wife have four children.
