Catalog Number 2008.010.176
Object Name Report, Administrative
Scope & Content 8 1/2" x 11" collection of daily reports completed by Deputies and Investigators with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. The purpose of the reports was to describe all events responded to by Deputies and Investigators between 6:00 pm and 7:00 am each night. The reports were sent to Deputies and Investigators assigned to Day Shift to keep them aware of the previous night's activities. The report program was initiated by Sheriff Carl Enlow in November of 1948 and continued through the terms of office of Arthur Wermuth (1957-1962) and Harold E. Bray (1962-1976). The report process ended in 1976 when these records were kept at real time by the Dispatch Center of the Sheriff's Department. This is the only package of reports in existence, these were kept because the Golden Police Department was incorporated in 1956 and are often the subject of these reports. These reports are a snapshot of the activities of law enforcement personnel working in Jefferson County, Colorado in one year.
