Sergeant Ronald Thomas Jr, Recruiter

I started my career with the City and County of Denver in 2011 with Denver Parks and Rec. With a dream of being in law enforcement, I applied to the Denver Sheriff Department in 2014. As a deputy, I was assigned to the Downtown Detention Center, Court Services, Fugitive Apprehension Unit, Civil Unit, Gang Intelligence Unit, and Emergency Response Unit. In 2021, I was promoted to sergeant. I grew up in South Denver and attended Bear Creek High School. I hope to build strong community relationships and find exceptional candidates to be successful deputies. I look forward to meeting you all.

I started my career with the Denver Sheriff Department (DSD) in 1999. My first assignment was at the Denver County Jail (COJL) where I was assigned to one of the buildings there that we call Building 20. While at the COJL, I was assigned to Work Release (which is no longer a program offered at the DSD) and Community Corrections. In 2012, however, I moved to the Correctional Care Medical Facility at Denver Health, where medical needs are met for correctional care patients in a guarded and locked unit within the hospital. In 2021, almost ten years after working at Denver Health, I was reassigned to COJL until I became a member of the Recruitment Team a year later. I'm happy to be here and excited to meet you!
