|| Rockford Brown
||I have been an employee of the Payne County Sheriff's Office for nearly sixteen years,
and in that time I have worked in the jail, dispatch, patrol, and on a K9 team.
The last year has been spent working as an investigator.
I investigate all crimes in Payne County, but my area of emphasis is in crimes
against persons and crimes against children.
Growing up, I rolled around on my single-speed, fixed gear, Huffy.
A hand me down from the older brother.
I got back into bicycles in early 2011 with another single-speed.
I finally bought my first new bike in 2014, a tangerine Surly Cross-Check.
In 2015, I brought my first child on a ride and with that, shorter bike trips happened,
as I cannot pull the Burley trailer as far.
On my life I have learned this, it is more fun with bikes and beer,
but there's not much that is more enjoyable than watching my
littles roll around on their little bikes.
