ALAMOSA — With fellow officers, family members and city council on hand, Alamosa Police Sergeant Ron Rogers was recognized during the Alamosa city council meeting Wednesday night for 30 years of dedicated service.

Alamosa Police Chief Ken Anderson and Alamosa Police Captain Sam Maestas presented a plaque of recognition to Rogers for his leadership, dedicated service and years of hard work to the City of Alamosa.

Chief Anderson said Sergeant Rogers began his career with the Alamosa Police Department on August 8, 1988, and worked his way up from patrolman to senior sergeant. Rogers is a leader of the SWAT team, a field training officer and involved with investigations. He also served for many years on the Alamosa Fire Department.

The chief said it is a huge accomplishment for Sgt. Rogers to serve the community for as long as he has.

“Thank you very much for your service,” Alamosa Mayor Ty Coleman told Rogers. The mayor also acknowledged the support of Rogers’ wife and three children. “You all have made a difference, as he has made a difference.”

Councilman Charles Griego remembered when Sgt. Rogers came on the force. “We both have grown old serving this community,” he said, adding that he personally wanted to thank Rogers and the council wanted to officially thank him for his years of service.
