Preston Schaugaard has been with the North Ogden Police Department as a patrol officer since July of 2017. Preston has a great attitude and a tremendous work ethic. He never complains about anything and tackles any task given him, making it clear that he has pride in his work.
During a recent shift, Preston was behind on several reports, with more to come, when a fellow officer was called to a high priority call. Preston stopped what he was doing, putting his own work aside, to go and help his fellow officer. Preston ended up spending a substantial amount of time assisting in his fellow officer’s investigation, knowing that his own work would still be waiting for him when they finished. Preston took this upon himself without being asked or told to do so. This is just a small
example of the team player that Preston is.
