Las Animas County FOP Press Release
Posted On: Dec 04, 2010



On November 18th officials of the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police met with the Las Animas County Sheriff, his staff, and the rank and file members of the department to discuss their concerns over proposed cuts by the Las Animas Board of County Commissioners to the 2011 Sheriff's budget.  


Last Monday the Las Animas County Commissioners announced additional cuts to next year’s public safety budget.  It is our opinion that these cuts, if implemented, will have a serious impact on both officer and public safety, and the ability to deliver adequate emergency services to the citizens of Las Animas County.  As a result we have joined with the Las Animas Sheriff to ask the commissioners to re-consider their decision. 


All counties in Colorado are faced with decreased revenues to some degree. Las Animas County is the only county we have seen proposing budget cuts to the extent that it adversely impacts the safety and welfare of its citizens. The bottom line is cuts will have to be made elsewhere. The 2011 budget submitted by the Sheriff is the “bottom line”.  We ask the County Commissioners to give serious consideration to their proposed actions on this budget in regards to the adverse impact that those decisions will have on the county and its citizens.


We know the public deserves, expects, demands and pays taxes for adequate responsive public safety services. To give them anything less is unconscionable. Public safety in Las Animas County cannot be compromised any further.  It is our sincerest hope the Las Animas County Board reconsiders their proposed cuts to the public safety budget.

In what has been an ongoing effort to seriously weaken or destroy the Denver Sheriffs Deputies FOP Lodge 27, the City of Denver manufactured an internal case and fired one the FOP’s top leaders and most outspoken advocates for union rights. Frank Gale is fighting this action and the FOP's attorneys are certain Frank will prevail.  It will be a long hard fight.  In response to requests from across the country a support fund has been established to accept donations to provide Frank financial aid through this difficult financial time.  Please give what you can.  Click on the “Donate” button below to link to our secure account. Thank you.
