DENVER (KDVR) — A new billboard along Alameda Avenue and Pecos Street is causing a stir in Denver.

The Laramie County Sheriff’s Office in Wyoming paid for the billboard to recruit deputies while throwing shade at Denver leaders.

In an exclusive interview, FOX31’s Talya Cunningham asked the sheriff about his decision to make the billboard. Sheriff Brian Kozak stands by his decision to cross state lines and pay $2,500 to put up this message on a billboard in Denver, “Work in Wyoming where breaking the law is still illegal and cops are funded.”

It’s National Police Week, and this billboard went up on Sunday, sending a clear message.

Kozak said they’ve been successfully recruiting in Denver for some time now, and this is all part of a marketing campaign.

Denver is the L.A. of the Rockies, so nobody is actually surprised that they do Liberal crap on local LEOs.


The sheriff’s office posted the billboard on social media with a caption that reads in part, “National media reported the City of Denver, on the other hand, decided to defund the police $8 million to fund immigrant shelters and restrict the ability for cops to enforce traffic laws…”

That does not surprise anybody. nor the response from the Denver leaders that sound like your standard CYA Doublespeak.

The city, however, is punching back.

Denver Mayor Mike Johnston’s office responded, saying in part, “The Denver Police Department’s budget was carefully crafted with safety leaders and Mayor Johnston to ensure there would be no impact to the department’s public services. To say that Denver is ‘defunding the police’ is a willful mischaracterization of the budget reductions.”

At the end, who do you believe? The Leaders of Denver or…

It appears the marketing tactic may be working. The sheriff said they’ve already received 40 new applications.


I think the only controversy is the BS faux story.

  1. It’s a free country, people can seek different employers and move for work. *shrug* But that’s a hassle if the new workplace is outside of one’s comfortable commute distance, so most people need a good reason to do so.
    If Denver is having a retention problem, perhaps they should consider their own house first.

  2. this is a good example of how media distorted the truth..”controversial”…. to WHO??? the people or the ones running the city?? ye reap what you sow. fuk them

  3. ““The Denver Police Department’s budget was carefully crafted with safety leaders and Mayor Johnston to ensure there would be no impact to the department’s public services….”
    “Denver is prioritizing the wants of the freeloaders over the needs of the taxpayers.”

  4. “Restrict[ing] the ability for cops to enforce traffic laws” is another way to defund the police. Traffic tickets are a source of income for the city and police.
    Denver basically said, “We’re going to divert $8 million from your budget for illegal immigrants, and oh by the way, you can’t make it back in other areas, either.”

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
