A Paonia High School graduate and U.S. Military veteran who chose a career in law enforcement is now serving as undersheriff for the Mesa County Sheriff's Office.

Todd Rowell was sworn in as undersheriff at a March 5 ceremony, according to a news release by the sheriff's office.

Rowell is the son of Ron and Debbie Rowell of Paonia and a native of Paonia. After graduating from Paonia High School, Rowell joined the U.S. Marine Corps, where he earned numerous awards. He later attended both the Corrections Academy and Police Academy at Delta-Montrose Technical College (now Technical College of the Rockies), graduating at the top of his class in 2000. Later that year he was hired by the Mesa County Sheriff's Office.

Rowell has served in various leadership positions and received several awards in his 17 years with the MCSO and served six years as president of the Mesa County Deputy Sheriff's Association.

Rowell was promoted to undersheriff following the retirement of Rusty Callow, who formerly retired recently following a 37-year career in law enforcement.
