I thank Chief of Police Jerry Putman for allowing me "The Best of Times" as a Peace Officer when I served under his command in Aurora, Colorado.

Chief Putman helped me establish a high moral ethic, and uncompromising sense of justice in my early days as a Aurora Police Officer.

The departmental standards he set when it came to Protecting & Serving The Public were higher than any standards I encountered in my 27 years of law enforcement work at the city, state, and federal level.

I never met them, but I would imagine Jerry's parents Mabel & Harvey were very proud of their Son, and what he did to make his country safer and a better place to live and raise children. I know that I am proud I had the honor to know him.

I saw Chief Jerry Putman buck the political system, and go contrary to the forces that hired him if it was needed to protect his officers. I never knew him to parlay his position or his badge to gain personal advantage or favor.

In my personal experience of Chief Putman he always embodied honesty, equity, generosity, and brotherhood as a guide to daily, professional relations.

To me, as much as any of my childhood heroes like Marshal Dillon or The Lone Ranger, Police Chief Jerry Putman will always be the "Real Deal", a real "Hero" in my life.

Thank You Chief...Happy Trails!

Hi to all the Family and all my love. I've tried twice before to get this memory to you but never was able to get it posted.

I remember Jerry as FUN!

My first memory of him was at Matt and Sue's Reception West when he and I sat in the corner of the kitchen and laughed about Debbie's strong coffee; even for a strong coffee drinker like Jerry; we had to add water.

I will remember him as a father of wonderul children, a husband that took his wife fun places, a witty man with a soupcon of satire, and just plain fun. Remember the FUN. xxx ooo Auntie (sister) dru

I will always remember Jerry Putman as the man who first professionalized the Aurora Police Department. Personally, he hired me as a police officer, affording me the first opportunity to serve the community as a police officer. I will be forever indebted to him for his wisdom, guidance, and for the trust he placed in me. He was truly the initial inspiration for a lifetime of public service.
