New Patrol Deputy in Powell
Sheriff Scott Steward announced today the appointment of Deputy Neal Corr to the department’s patrol division. Deputy Corr was reassigned from the Park County Detention Facility and will begin his new duties immediately patrolling out of the Powell District.
“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 Corr will serve the citizens of Park County in the manner to which they have come to expect; with pride, compassion, and professionalism.”
Deputy Corr was employed as a detention deputy with the Park County Sheriff’s Office from 2004 to 2014 at which time he resigned to become a Greybull, Wyoming police officer. After nearly two and a half years he resigned that position and in October of 2016 was once again employed as a detention deputy with Park County.
Originally from Torrington, Deputy Corr relocated to Park County in 1998 where he pursued a career in teaching. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Commercial Music with a teaching certificate from Chadron State University in Chadron, Nebraska. He has two grown children and currently resides in Powell.
