Patrick Geraghty has joined the department’s patrol division. Geraghty transferred from the Park County Detention Facility, where he'd served since 2012.

He'll begin his new duties immediately.

Before joining the sheriff's office, Geraghty worked for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and before that, he served in the United States Marine Corps. His military service included tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as deployments in southeast Asia.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Geraghty relocated to the Cody area in 2009. He lives with his wife, Kari, and their three children.

Patrol deputies are 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,” Steward said in a news release, and the sheriff said he's confident Geraghty will serve the county's citizens well.

Geraghty replaces long-time Deputy Aaron Rose, who recently retired and took a job with Park County Public Works.
