DENVER — Colorado Attorney General John Suthers praised President Barack Obama’s nomination of John Kammerzell, the director of Colorado’s Peace Officer Standards and Training program, as Colorado’s next U.S. Marshal.
“John’s more than three decades of experience in law enforcement make him an ideal candidate to be Colorado’s next U.S. Marshal,” Suthers said. “John has done an excellent job developing training programs and protocols for the Peace Officers Standards and Training unit within the Attorney General’s Office. No one knows law enforcement better than John.
“I hope the U.S. Senate will move to swiftly confirm John for this position.”
Kammerzell has been the director of the Peace Officer Standards and Training program since February 2001. Prior to joining the Office of the Attorney General, Kammerzell served in a variety of roles in Colorado’s law enforcement community, including being the elected sheriff in Rio Grande County.
