What Your JeffCo Sheriff’s Office is Doing to Keep Employees & Inmates Safe During Covid-19
Like many of you, we’re working to maintain a sense of normalcy and continuity as we work to keep Jefferson County safe and informed when it comes to public safety.
We also realize that comes with its own set of challenges as we and our families are concerned about JCSO employees’ health when we interact with the public and take care of the hundreds of inmates in our charge.
So here’s information about what we’re doing to keep everyone safe while continuing to provide public safety services to our citizens. We share this information not to alarm, but to keep our public informed about how we are doing our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Colorado #DoingMyPartCO
