Peace Officer of the Year

May 16, 2017

The Adams/Broomfield County Bar Association selected Thornton Police Commander Pat Long as the Adams/Broomfield County Peace Officer of the Year. He was chosen for his courageous actions after he was shot during an incident in March 2016. Long stopped a vehicle that was driving without headlights in an RTD Park-n-Ride lot at 8703 Grant St. When Long went back to his car to check the man’s record, the driver approached with a shotgun, and shot the officer. Long was able to drive his patrol car away from the shooter, and then joined other officers in chasing and apprehending the suspect.
