The Pueblo County Courier Service is looking for a few good -- people. The couriers walk roughly a mile each day and driver several more as they move files from the Sheriff's main office to substations, the courts and other locations. The group has been around for about ten years. The volunteers are believed to have saved the country $100,000 in payroll costs.
February 2010 marks a decade of service for a special group of volunteers at the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office. The PCSO Courier Team is made up of a humble group of men and women who contribute their time and energy to provide a vital and cost saving service to the Sheriff's Office.
"John Parmenter and his group have streamlined themselves into an amazing asset for us. They are certainly a special set of people and we are so glad to have them contribute to our success as an agency." says Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor.
The Courier Team is in need of volunteers. Couriers are never asked to handle money or evidence and must be able to work a minimum of 3 hours each week, posses a valid driver's license, and be able to pass a criminal background check. Couriers are provided a vehicle for use during their route. Any citizens interested should contact Sheri Herrera at 719-583-6200 or visit the Sheriff's Office Emergency Services Bureau at 320 W 10th Street in the basement, or the Pueblo West Substation at 320 Joe Martinez Blvd in Pueblo West.
