The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, which was founded on November 7, 1859, survives as one of Colorado's original law enforcement agencies and is the largest full-service sheriff's office in the state.
The patch, unveiled in 2000, symbolizes the western heritage of Jefferson County and its sheriff's office. It was re-created using the original brassard created in 1949 to mark the sheriff's office's transition from the 20th to 21st century.
The new patch was adapted from a design by Joseph Garcia of Denver. The center vignette was developed by our own Lt. Dan Gard and Sgt. Richard "J.J." Webb (longtime veterans of the sheriff's office) to reflect the feel of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. The image includes a shadowed lone rider, who is actually Deputy Ron Guillaumin, sitting astride his horse, Diamond.
The original patch, which the new patch replaced, was hand-sketched by then-Undersheriff Carl Enlow, who slipped his drawing into a typewriter to add the words "Jefferson County Sheriff's Dept." The designers of the new patch used digital photography and computers to create their image.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office shoulder patch is available to collectors. If you wish to request one, please contact: Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Attn: Community Relations 200 Jefferson County Parkway Golden, CO 80401
