A Uintah County Sergeant has received national recognition and been selected to attend a national academy. Sgt. Adam Gonzalez has earned a Certified Jail Manager designation from the American Jail Association through the Jail Manager Certification Commission.”He is the only current deputy in the state of Utah to be awarded this  distinction,” shares the Uintah County Sheriff’s Office. “This hallmark certification is granted only after the successful completion of a rigid experiential background application, 5 years of promotional leadership, as well as an intensive four-hour examination jointly prepared by the AJA and the JMCC. In addition to this recognition, Sgt. Gonzalez was recently chosen by the NJLCA Advisory Committee to attend the National Jail Leadership Command Academy in Houston. The academy brings law enforcement professionals together from all over the United States and covers a wide range of topics led by its faculty of subject matter experts. Only one Utahn has graduated from the academy.” Sgt. Gonzalez expressed his gratitude to Sheriff Steve Labrum and Deputy Brian Fletcher for their emphasis on the needs and opportunities in the county jail. Congratulations Sgt. Adam Gonzalez  and thank you for representing the Basin so well!
