MCSO Deputy earns Drug Recognition Expert certification

Congratulations to Mesa County Sheriff's Office Deputy Amanda Simon, who graduated from an intensive 9-day Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) training course. Simon scored in the top of her class on her written final exam and was one of 16 law enforcement officers to graduate from this elite program.  Her work is not entirely done;  Deputy Simon must complete a week of real-life examination on people at an out-of-state detention facility.   With the addition of this graduating class, the state of Colorado now has 120 DREs. 

Congratulations, Deputy Simon; we are incredibly proud of your excellent work!
