ASPEN, CO – Today, Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo announced he will be supporting Michael Dougherty for Attorney General in the upcoming election, joining the ranks of other elected sheriffs to endorse Dougherty.
Michael Dougherty released the following statement:
“Throughout my career, I have been honored to work side-by-side with law enforcement in our joint mission to protect and serve the public. As Attorney General, I intend to bring a renewed spirit of cooperation back to our law enforcement community. It is only through collaboration that we can preserve public safety, while bringing meaningful reform to the criminal justice system. I am honored to have the support of Sheriff DiSalvo and I look forward to working with him to improve community safety and public trust in law enforcement throughout our state.”
Sheriff Joe DiSalvo released the following statement:
“I had the opportunity to work with Michael in advising the State of Colorado on how it should implement the use of body-worn cameras and best practices regarding the use of body-worn cameras by law enforcement officers. Michael’s depth of experience and knowledge of law enforcement make him uniquely qualified to serve as Attorney General. As we continue to see an array of new practices implemented across our field, having an Attorney General who understands the importance of training and significant criminal justice issues is critical to our mission of protecting the public. Coloradans deserve a public servant like Michael to serve as Attorney General, I am so proud to support him.”
