At the annual County Sheriffs of Colorado (CSOC) winter conference last week, Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee was elected president of the board.
The mission statement for CSOC is: "As an association of county sheriffs, we advocate for and serve the office of sheriff.
We provide education and professional assistance and promote unity to enable the sheriffs to best serve and protect the people of the State of Colorado."
McKee said, "As a member of the association, I have tried to stay active and have been part of the board of directors for five of the 10 years that I have been sheriff. The association is very beneficial to county sheriffs. In addition to providing affordable training for sheriffs and deputies, the association also provides access to legal advice; is a strong voice in legislative decisions; and most importantly, a forum for sheriffs and undersheriffs to share concerns, ideas and advice.
"As with most nonprofit organizations, fundraising is always a priority and one of the association's primary revenue sources is through our honorary membership program. As president of the board, I hope to increase those numbers during this coming year. This program is open to the general public and anyone interested in the program or becoming an honorary member can contact me at the sheriff's office at 874-2000 or check out the County Sheriffs of Colorado's website at www.csoc.org. The County Sheriffs of Colorado never solicits by telephone.
