Ready for their first collar

The Jeffco Sheriff’s Office welcomed three new members to its ranks in a ceremony last week. And all three new deputies received vigorous head rubs and ear scratches.

The three canines, introduced March 19, are named Thorn, Bigi and Klaus. All three were trained in Florida and have been bonding with their human partners since being brought to Colorado several weeks ago.
