On August 13, Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown and Arapahoe County Coroner Dr. Kelly Lear hosted an Open House and free pancake breakfast for the community. 

The event included Sheriff’s deputies demonstrating how their K-9 partners help catch criminals and find drugs, therapy miniature horses, SWAT and bomb squad tools and procedures, South Metro Fire Rescue engines and tools, including a demonstration on the use of the Jaws of Life, Arapahoe Rescue Patrol, Emergency Management, tours of the 911 dispatch center, the Sheriff’s Office, and the Coroner’s facility, and even a dunk tank where people got a chance to dunk their favorite elected official by donating $5 to help pay for breast cancer and prostate cancer treatment for Littleton Adventist Hospital patients in need of assistance. An estimated 2,500 people attended.
