Jason Hanratty who was recently promoted to sergeant with the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department has strong ties to the Greenhorn Valley. He grew up on the Beulah Highway, and transferred to Rye School system for his high school years since Beulah does not have a high school. Jason graduated from Rye High School in 2000. His parents, Vikki Tadych Hanratty and Joe Hanratty, both attended and graduated from Rye High School.

Hanratty became interested in joining law enforcement when he was working a combination of paramedic job and working loss prevention at Walmart. He says "With what I saw in loss prevention, I knew I wanted to help stop crime and I enjoyed helping others. A look at the Sheriff's Department opened my eyes as to what I could do."

Hanratty joined the Sheriff's Department in 2007 as a detention deputy, attended classes at Colorado State University, and began doing patrol work in 2010. He has been a SWAT team member and a School Resource Officer. He has been acting sergeant since December 2018. Hanratty said, "Being in the sergeant position is different from patrol work. It is very different to be in a supervisory position and need to worry about other officer’s safety as well as your own. It's a great job, I enjoy being able to give back to the community."

Other promotions announced by Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor are as follows:

Steve Bryant and Sandy Purkett were promoted to Captain, replacing longtime Pueblo County Sheriff’s Captains Tracy Swearingen and Don Leach, both of whom retired in March

“Captain Bryant and Captain Purkett are veteran employees of the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office and have demonstrated they have the skills, work ethic and dedication to lead this organization,” Sheriff Taylor said. “They are both examples of the fine employees we have at this agency and we look forward to their continued commitment to this agency and the citizens of Pueblo County.”
