005. Local Law Enforcement & COVID19 with Mesa County Sheriff Matt Lewis
Listen "beyond the soundbite," as Law Talk Colorado news anchor Michael Moran talks with Western Colorado's Sheriff Matt Lewis of Mesa County in this extended podcast episode. Sheriff Lewis shares insights into the new challenges, approaches, and discusses interpretations of the state's rulings relevant to law enforcement in this time of COVID19. An excellent followup to episode #4 featuring Grand Junction's Police Chief on the public safety aspects of the COVID19 rulings as the two agencies often work together. Sheriff Lewis reminds us through his detailed responses that not every community is a reflection of national news headlines; that it is all too easy "to take that national information and extrapolate it to the men and women here locally... that's not who we are." The information shared and questions answered by Sheriff Lewis are not only relevant to Western Coloradans, but an overall excellent listen to those interested in how one community's law enforcement is managing its protests, stay-at-home orders, and more during the COVID19 pandemic. Thanks for listening!
