Park County Sheriff Wegener partners with 2015 Alpine World Ski Championships

Good neighbor relationships are built by reaching out and assisting other law enforcement agencies at both planned events and during emergencies. That's why Park County Sheriff Fred Wegener is here working as a liaison officer during the 2015 Alpine World Ski Championships. Liaison officers work with incident and event management teams to establish and maintain strong relationships with stakeholders within involved communities and those affiliated with major events. The opportunity to work as a liaison officer provides knowledge and insight for future emergency incidents and event planning and builds camaraderie amongst all levels of government agencies involved.

"Assisting at the Championships allows Park County to give back the assistance we've received during major events, including wildfires and school shootings,” said Sheriff Wegener. A Colorado native, Wegener served for six years in the U.S. Air Force as a military police officer. After his time in the military, Sheriff Wegener continued his 28-year career in law enforcement and was recently re-elected to his fifth term as Park County Sheriff.

The mission of the Park County Sheriff’s Office is to provide honest and reliable service to its citizens through professionalism, respect, integrity, dedication and excellence. The professional commitment to the public through dedicated service remains a consistent theme of all partners to the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
