Please take a moment to remember the hard work and dedication shown this valley by the many men and women who served with the Grand Junction Police Department and Mesa County Sheriff's Office over the years with these photos from late Daily Sentinel photographer Robert Grant.

Robert Grant spent over four decades photographing law enforcement officers serving Western Colorado. As you can no doubt imagine, he took thousands and thousands of photos of police and deputies.

For the purpose of this video, I wanted to showcase a handful of photos of officers in their daily routine. A traffic stop here, a fender bender there, and on occasion, an airplane landing in the middle the interstate. Photos of authorities dealing with more serious and graphic events have not been included in this short video.

Thank you to all who have worn the uniform, and dedicated their lives to "serve and protect" the citizens of Western Colorado.
