Partner Profile: Boulder County Sheriff's Office

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has four deputies working and experiencing the 2015 Alpine World Ski Championships alongside the Vail Police. We all understand the safety and security of the participants in the events, the residents of the Vail Valley, as well as the international visitors is best accomplished through a cooperative effort between agencies. The lessons learned by every event are utilized to ensure success in the future.

All four deputies are avid outdoor enthusiasts, which motivated them to request to participate. Two are working in the event command post as Logistics Section Chief and a Safety Officer. One is working alongside Vail Officers on night shift patrols and the third has been deployed with his K9 partner to secure the event venues. 
The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is eager to lend a hand and build cooperative relationships with other organizations as we all learn a great deal in large scale events. Success in preplanned events such as the AWSC relies on relationships fostered between agencies and helps ensure success in unplanned events such as fires and floods.
