This past week was National Police, Week which gave me an opportunity to show my appreciation for all of the hard work, dedication and accomplishments of the deputies of the Bayfield Marshal's Office.
Additionally, it gave the community an opportunity to give back and show your appreciation as well.
The awards ceremony and memorial for fallen officers this past Friday night was simply amazing and the show of support from the community was overwhelming.
A huge thanks to all the donors who helped sponsor the event, as it could not have been possible without your astounding generosity.
To the staff at Pine River Valley Church and your volunteers, thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you did to make the evening so special.
To the Colorado State Attorney General Cynthia Coffman, I am beyond grateful that you could attend and chose to recognize our department with the 2017 Law Enforcement Agency of Excellence award.
Thank you to the deputies of the Bayfield Marshal's Office and thank you to all law enforcement for your service and sacrifice!
