Denver Broncos Award Warrior Kits to Sheriff's Office
Dolores County Sheriff Jerry Martin was contacted recently and informed the Denver Broncos had selected the Dolores County Sheriff's Office as one of the recipients of two Warrior Kits valued at over $3,000.00. The Warrior Kits consisted of two high threat level ballistic vests, helmets, and bullet trauma kits.
The Dolores County Sheriffs Office was one of several agencies across the state the Denver Broncos provided the kits to. In response to and in memory of the deputies killed in the line of duty in Colorado during 2018, Bronco defensive back, Von Miller and the Denver Broncos launched a fund raiser to provide the high level kits to law enforcement and fire fighters across the state who have to respond to life threatening situations involving active shooters.
Dolores County Deputies Braiden Banks and Matt Purkat traveled to the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse and Bronco Training Center in Englewood, Colorado to be presented with the Warrior Kits by the Bronco players. The deputies met and shook hands with John Elway, Von Miller, and several other Bronco football stars while they were at the presentation.
The officers at the Dolores County Sheriff's Office deeply appreciate the new safety equipment provided by the Denver Broncos.
