National Police Week in Full Swing

Local News

Staring back at the face of danger, our local law enforcement make sacrifices to keep you safe at all costs.

To recognize their bravery, Mesa County Commissioners are recognizing National Police Week on a local level.

To kick-off the week of law enforcement recognition, an Honor Guard flag ceremony was held this morning for both the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office and Grand Junction Police Department.

Not only will National Police Week be a time to thank law enforcement for all they do, but it will serve as a reminder for the 129 men and women who died in the line of duty in 2017.

“They are true professionals. They get into this line of work because they care about this community and they care about it being a safe place to live to raise a family, to recreate, and those people do it every day”, says Mesa County Sheriff Matt Lewis.

A variety of events are planned throughout the week supporting local law enforcement such as Coffee with a Cop and the Public Safety Touch-A-Truck where kids and family can explore and learn more about law enforcement vehicles.

The list of activities and events can be found down below.
