PARK CITY, Utah. — After a 27-year career in law enforcement, Andrew Leatham, Park City native and Captain at the Park City Police Department (PCPD), is retiring.
“Captain Leatham has always been a tenacious leader and quintessential example of what a peace officer should be and stands for,” Park City Police Chief Wade Carpenter said in a statement. “I have truly appreciated his commitment to this noble profession, especially considering the tremendous impact on him and his family.”
Leatham’s law enforcement career includes service as a special agent with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security. He was also a Captain for the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and in charge of the department’s Patrol Bureau.
His current role as Operations Commander for the PCPD includes management of patrol, traffic, and special events.
“There is no question that this profession is unlike any other, especially in today’s difficult and challenging environment,” Carpenter said. “Captain Leatham has always been a force for good, progress, and service to his community. We wish Captain Leatham and his family well as he starts a new and productive chapter of service in his life.”
Leatham will close out his career where he began: as a brother in blue at the PCPD. His official retirement date is Feb. 14.
