Are you in the mood for some good news? Out of the blue, here's a "Thank You" note direct from the Montrose County Sheriff's Office.

Let's face it, tension is high, even in Western Colorado. There's conflict all around, and many people are feeling polarized.

Straight out of nowhere comes a special message from a Western Colorado law enforcement agency. Please take a moment to enjoy this message posted on the Montrose County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.

On behalf of the Montrose County Sheriff’s Office and our staff, I would like to express my sincere appreciation of the outpouring of support that we have received in recent weeks. Members of our community within Montrose County, neighboring areas within the state and even individuals outside of Colorado have been very generous with their show of support. We have enjoyed many home baked items, catered meals for all staff, monetary donations and letters and phone calls proving that our community believes in law enforcement and the men and women who have dedicated their careers to serve and protect our citizens. In a time when there is so much unrest and the thin blue line is stretched even thinner, the knowledge that our community will be there to stand with us is a blessing that many in law enforcement across the country cannot lay claim to. We sincerely appreciate you. God Bless you all! - Sincerely, Sheriff Gene R Lillard and Staff
