Thank you to all of those who are working this Labor Day. To help celebrate the accomplishments and hard work done by people every day, we thought we would share a story of two of our deputies whose work was recently recognized.
Deputy Moody and Kugel were dispatched to assist the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office with a vehicle pursuit entering Boulder County. The suspect was well-known to peace officers and had a history of making threats toward peace officers. The driver, who was fleeing at speeds up to 140 mph, had a felony warrant from Weld County, and was considered armed and dangerous. A passenger in the vehicle called 911 concerned for her life due to the high speeds of the fleeing driver.
Deputy Moody took the initiative to call the driver and establish rapport. He believed the driver was experiencing a mental health crisis. Through intense negotiations, Deputy Moody convinced the driver to drive to a local hospital for care.
Deputy Kugel took over once the driver arrived at the hospital. He previously worked in the Boulder County Jail and was a familiar face to the driver. Deputy Kugel remained calm and ultimately convinced the driver that deputies were present to help not harm, deescalating the situation to the point the driver was peacefully taken into custody.
Deputy Moody’s creative approach paired with Deputy Kugel’s crisis intervention training (CIT) skills helped neutralize a public safety threat. Their successful, peaceful resolution to a volatile situation is an outstanding example of the character and professionalism with which they carry out their duties.
