Brick but also the Red Brick and Black Brick awards. The Red Brick Award signifies rowing 34
miles and the Black Brick Award signifies bicycling 278 miles.

Detective Hunt is father to three sons and one daughter and recently announced his engagement

“It is a distinct honor to have one of our own successfully complete the prestigious and
demanding FBI National Academy,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “Not only has Detective Hunt
distinguished himself as a valuable member of our Sheriff’s Office team but also as a member of
various task forces and special tactics teams. We were so pleased to have him represent us in
this session of the academy. Thanks, Detective Hunt for all you do and for all that you are.”
