mulberry canvas bag Limon law enforcement thanks Morgan County
That night, Morgan County law enforcement and justice officials stepped in to help a community that was rocked by the loss of one of its own, and they again assisted Limon and Lincoln County on March 15 at Sheridans funeral.
More than 1,500 people, including nearly all of the law enforcement officials from Limon and Lincoln County, attended Sheridans funeral on March 15.
That left a big need for help in covering their duties, and thats where the Crones deputies and District Attorney Bob Watsons office stepped up, according to Yowell.
The Lincoln County Sheriff traveled Friday to Fort Morgan to present certificates of appreciation to the members of the Morgan County Sheriffs Office and the 13th Judicial District for their “commitment of manpower, time and support in our moment of great loss of Officer Jay Sheridan.”
“You guys presence was just heartfelt and it was so nice to have you there,” Yowell said.
Joining Yowell at the ceremony, held at the Morgan County Justice Center, were LPD Sgt.

“We constantly hope and pray that events such as occurred on the evening of March 9 never happen on our watch, but when they do,
it is an enormous comfort to know that agencies such as yours are immediate to respond and assist, no questions asked,” Yowell read. “Without the efforts of so many of our law enforcement families, it is possible that the incident may have turned out to be even worse than it was.
“For those of you who patrolled our town and covered calls while we took a brief time to grieve our loss, there are no words of appreciation that can ever repay the debt we owe,” Yowell continued.
