Employee Spotlight – Kayd Averett

Officer Averett is known as the “cool dude” to the kids in North Ogden City. Not only does he carry his badge with pride and dignity, but he also has a fun side and carries Groot from the Marvel Movies on his shoulder. Because of this, he is a hit at the elementary school playground, showing kids that officers are approachable and care about them. Kayd is an example to many and upholds his duty as a patrol officer by keeping our community safe, protecting our residents, and supporting his brothers and sisters in blue. Recently, Officer Averett took his skills and training from his police cruiser to his bicycle; he certified as a bike officer. This takes an incredible amount of physical fitness and is no easy task, but that didn’t stop Kayd from achieving one of his career goals.

Officer Averett responds to a myriad of calls weekly, which may include traffic stops that can be simple learning experiences to more critical calls where lives are saved. When someone in our community faces life-changing events, Officer Averett is there to offer support and expertise and is someone you’d want by your side.

When he’s not patrolling and keeping our city one of the safest cities in Utah, Kayd enjoys spending time with his “amazing wife,” going on family vacations, riding his Harley, and relaxing at a summer BBQ.

Officer Averett’s favorite thing about North Ogden is the people. He loves North Ogden so much that he not only works for the city, but his home is here, too.

Thank you for your service to our city! We appreciate you!
