Officer Perkins was sworn in as a police officer with North Ogden City in February 2022, immediately becoming an office favorite with his kindness, sense of humor, and willingness to help. He is an exceptional officer with strong moral character, an amazing ability to negotiate and rationalize even the toughest situations, and his tolerance for those who are having a difficult time is unmatched.
Each day he handles calls for service, ensuring the safety of residents in our community with his quick actions to help those in need. When someone is experiencing an emergency, it’s reassuring to know that Officer Perkins is by your side. When asked why he’s proud to be in law enforcement, he said, “I’m very proud that I’ve been able to help citizens through some of the worst moments and times. Being able to help is very rewarding and I’m proud of that.”
Officer Perkins loves spending time with his “amazing wife, Kaitlyn, and amazing family.” He’s a diehard Washington Commanders fan, bleeding burgundy and gold, so a trip to Washington D.C. every year to watch them play is one of his favorite traditions.
Officer Perkins believes the best part of working for North Ogden is “serving the best citizens and working alongside the best co-workers. It feels like a family here in North Ogden.”
Thank you Officer Perkins for keeping our community safe. We appreciate you!
