Over six years ago, while serving as ESCO's Undersheriff, Heap began a process of strengthening working relationships and partnerships with elected officials, government offices, community organizations, and other law enforcement agencies, that are critical to the daily functions of the County. His knowledge and skills have proven to be an asset to not only Elbert County, but to all of southeastern Colorado's law enforcement efforts.

The Sheriff’s Office has seen significant change in the past three years as Heap streamlined the organization and flattened the command structure making more deputies available to serve the public. He made school safety a priority and aggressively took a stand for citizen’s constitutional rights.

"I am a law enforcement officer, first and foremost. As your Sheriff, I function as a public servant, not a politician. My first priority is and always will be protecting and improving the lives of Elbert County families. Over the next four years, I will continue the process of improving the service and performance of the Sheriff’s Office, focusing on what is in the best interest of public safety and leading the department to even higher levels of professionalism."  - Shayne Heap
