Deputy’s Patrol Unit Wins First Prize

DeputSgtMathews (1)y Terry Mathews is known for taking great pride in the appearance of his patrol unit from maintaining a high gloss shine on the tires, pressure washing the engine, to keeping a vacuumed and Armor All coated interior.  Recently Golden Circle Ford in Bolivar held a community car show and invited local law enforcement agencies to compete in a special category they called TOP COP.  Deputy Mathews was given permission to enter both his county unit and, as a part time Officer with Grand Junction, their patrol unit as well.  Deputy Mathews spend 5 of his off days, at 4-5 hours per day, detailing both patrol units for the contest.  Upon review by the judging official appointed by Golden Circle Ford, the winning trophy was awarded to the Grand Junction PD unit entered by Deputy Mathew.  There was no runner up position, however it was rumored that Deputy Mathew’s county unit was considered next best in the competition.
