At the time of the incident on Saturday, Hansen was on bond for a 2016 case in which seven pounds of methamphetamine, amid other narcotics, weapons and stolen property was located in his Yuma home during an investigation into a shooting that occurred in the county.

The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office has announced that jail operations will have to be scaled back significantly, effective immediately. This change is a result of a manpower shortage. There are only currently 13 approved positions to operate the Yuma County Jail plus one programs coordinator position that also assisted with Jail operations. This staff also has responsibility for security operations in the Yuma County and District courts, security in the courthouse, and all inmate transports.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

DUI ENFORCEMENT BLITZ FOR JULY 4TH IN EFFECT ACROSS COLORADO There are so many good reasons to love Independence Day. There are patriotic fireworks, family get-togethers, and great food and fun. But in CO in 2017, 394 impaired drivers were arrested over the holiday enforcement period, and 34 were involved with fatal traffic accidents. For 2018 we'd like to encourage everyone to follow the Yuma County Sheriff's Office motto of, "Make the next right choice." If you are driving to an event, establish a designated driver. If you are hosting a BBQ, please offer guests who have been drinking a spare bedroom for the night, or at the least, take their keys and provide them with a safe ride home. Better yet--provide plenty of food and non-alcoholic beverages and plan activities and games that do not involve alcohol. Happy 4th of July and... God Bless America, YCSO Yuma County Office of Emergency Management

Congratulations Deputy Tom Kron on your completion of field training!

MONDAY MORNING COFFEE TREATS A special thank you goes out to Mary McDaniel for baking us some treats this morning. We sure appreciate you!

It was fun to have the Wauneta 4-H club stop by while they toured and learned about the Yuma County Courthouse and government functions. They got to meet two of our new K-9s in training and asked really engaging questions.

DEPUTY HENDERSON RETIRED TODAY! Today we honor Deputy Jim Henderson, as he retired from Yuma County Sheriff’s Office this afternoon. Jim served for 20 years in the military, in Europe and Asia, and retired as a Sergeant Major. After leaving military service, Jim served for 20 years in the Department of Corrections at Limon and Sterling. Jim has served for 6 years with Yuma County Sheriff’s Office, and we are sad to see him leave. Jim has trained many of the detention staff at Yuma County Jail. He taught with a quiet leadership based in practical experience and his personal views on law enforcement character through: story-telling, hands-on-practice, observation, and reflection. Jim taught as he worked; he held high standards for accountability from his peers and always advocated for honesty, inmate growth and improvement, and fairness in word and deed. Deputy Henderson has given 42 years of his life in service to his country and fellow man. We think that’s pretty amazing. It’s been our pleasure to call Deputy Henderson our brother, and our friend. Happy retirement, Jim!
