Katie Ash, Alan Barbee, Teresa Nees, and Sarah Wilson with Noxious Weed Management helped host a field trip for STARS summer camp at James M. Robb State Park in Fruita.

On Sunday, deputies and investigators teamed up with the Grand Junction Police Department (GJPD) to meet and greet the C.O.P.S. Kids (Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) Outward Bound experience for children of officers that have been killed in the line of duty.)

Kids, ages 13-20, flew into Grand Junction from all over the country, in preparation for a week-long rafting trip. Guests were met at the airport by local law enforcement, and had the privilege of spending the day with them, playing games, providing meals, and getting to know a little about them. 

C.O.P.S. is a great organization that provides countless resources to families that have been affected by tragic losses. We were honored to get to contribute to their mission!
