Vallario appoints new jail administrator

Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario has appointed Sgt. Scott Dawson as the department’s new jail commander.

“My decision was based on Scott’s thorough knowledge of the jail operations as well his support from within the sheriff’s office,” Vallario said. “Scott’s commitment and dedication to the organization during his tenure as interim jail commander proved to me that he is the right person to run our jail operations.”

Dawson served as interim jail commander since Jan. 15 and has been with the sheriff’s department for nine years.
