DEPUTY BRANDON ROUNDY AND CLYDE
Deputy Brandon Roundy was hired on with the Davis County Sheriff’s Office in September of 2007. He is assigned to the Patrol Division, currently day shift. Deputy Roundy is unique in that, not only is he a deputy paramedic, but he is assigned as a K9 handler. The K9 unit covers all of Davis County for coverage and K9 support. There is a K9 handler and dog team on duty around the clock.
Deputy Roundy has been a paramedic since 2001, and has been in emergency medicine since 1998. Prior to working at the Davis County Sheriff’s Office, Brandon was a firefighter with Ogden Fire Department for 9 years. He was a SWAT medic for 5 years with Ogden Fire, and then with the SWAT/PTRU Team for another year while at the Sheriff’s Office.
Brandon was a US Army Ranger assigned to 2nd Ranger Battalion from 1992 to 1996. Brandon is happily married, with a set of four-year-old twin boys and a newborn baby boy. During his off duty time, Brandon enjoys camping, hunting, fishing, running marathons, anything outdoors, and spending time with his family, most of all.
Deputy Roundy’s K9, Clyde is a five-year-old Belgium Malinois. Clyde was donated in 2008 from Cascade K9 out of Washington State. He is a dual-purpose sheriff’s K9 that is trained in narcotics detection, patrol-criminal apprehension, handler protection and tracking. Clyde would rather be at work than at home. Clyde loves his handler almost as much as his handler loves Clyde! Join us on February 21, 2012 via Twitter to follow Deputy Roundy and Clyde during their shift.
