Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman Issues a Statement Concerning the Tragic Death of Park County Sheriff’s Deputy Corporal Nate Carrigan

Another Member of Colorado’s Law Enforcement Community Killed While Bravely Serving the Citizens of Our State

DENVER – “For the sixth time since becoming Colorado’s Attorney General, and for the second time already this year, I am faced with honoring a Colorado law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty,” said Attorney General Coffman.  “I am both saddened and appalled by the continued violence against those whose duty it is to serve and protect all Coloradans.”

“Today, my thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Park County Sheriff’s deputy Corporal Nate Carrigan, as well as the two deputies injured in Wednesday’s senseless attack,” said Attorney General Coffman. “I encourage every Coloradan to take a moment today to remember Corporal Carrigan’s sacrifice, and to thank a member of Colorado’s law enforcement community for the difficult work they do every day to make our communities a safer place to live.”
