The Story of the Sheriff’s Saddle
This is a Sheriff’s Saddle. It’s a plain saddle, not covered in fancy silver Conchos or a lot of tooling. This is a practical, tough working saddle.
Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office News
- From Sheriff Nowlin, In the last couple of days, several Denver/Metro law enforcement agencies have received reports such as this which are being performed by subjects impersonating police officers at night. In order to protect our citizens, if you are being contacted by an officer at night and you are uncertain of whether or not you are being contacted by an actual law enforcement officer, please activate your four-way warning flashers on your vehicle and proceed to the nearest public venue or law enforcement office and call 911, give your name and location, and ascertain from the dispatcher if you are being stopped by an actual law enforcement officer. Please report any suspected police impersonation.
