FirstNet Connects Rural Colorado First Responders

The Elbert County Sheriff uses powerful broadband capabilities to enhance public safety.

Southeast of Denver on the Colorado plains, Elbert County is one of the fastest-growing counties in the state. Covering approximately 1,800 square miles, the county is roughly the size of the state of Delaware. Despite the vast area, the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office averages just two deputies and one supervisor per shift. It can take 45 to 60 minutes to drive across the county, complicating things if one of the two deputies needs backup during response.
