CENTENNIAL – The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office received the prestigious Triple Crown award on June 24 at the National Sheriff’s Association annual conference in Phoenix, AZ.
The sheriff’s office is the first law enforcement agency in the United States to attain “Triple Crown status” under a fourth sheriff. This accreditation is so rare, only 49 sheriff offices in the U.S. have attained this status and only 22 have attained it under a different sheriff than the one who had originally attained the Triple Crown Award.
The award is presented to law enforcement agencies that have received professional accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement (CALEA); the American Correctional Association (ACA); and the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHA).
“It’s an honor to be a part of this agency where the men and women take such pride in their jobs. This award belongs to every person who works here. These are strict national standards we have to meet where we’re audited for months and submit reports showing compliance with those standards. It’s a daunting task but it’s what makes us the best of the best,” says Sheriff Tyler Brown.
