Paying Tribute to Western Colorado’s First Responders of Yesteryear
The impact of numerous police shootings is being felt around the country. Of course, we had our own tragedy earlier this year in Western Colorado. Take a moment to pay tribute to Mesa Country's police, sheriff's deputies, and firefighters of yesterday with these Robert Grant photos.
These photos, all from Mesa County, range from the mid-1940s through the early 1980s. You'll spot a handful of well-known Grand Junction area officers including RT Mantlow and Mike Gazdak. Hopefully, you'll see a familiar face or two.
Personally, I've always been a huge supporter of Western Colorado's law enforcement. Take a look around. We live in an incredible place, and our local police and firefighters are largely responsible. What better place could you hope to find to raise a family?
Thank you to all of Western Colorado's First Responders.
