This letter is in support of James van Beek for Eagle County sheriff. I have known James for more than 20 years. I was part of the hiring board when James was first hired as a deputy with the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office. The entire board was impressed with his honesty, knowledge and vision. I observed Mr. van Beek’s progress within the department, from road officer to field training officer and finally investigator. Since his time with the ECSO, James has increased his experience in law enforcement through many years of postings in multi-national law enforcement settings. James is an outstanding family man with a deep commitment to his community and to Eagle County. I believe that James van Beek will be an excellent sheriff for Eagle County.
