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!
