Media Alert: Subsentio® Honors Law Enforcement at "Citizens Appreciate State Troopers" Awards Event


Friday, July 27 – 11:00AM MTN

Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion

On Friday, July 27 at 11:00am MTN time, Centennial-based Subsentio, the
CALEA Compliance Company®, salutes members of the Colorado State
Patrol selected to receive the "Citizens Appreciate State Troopers" or
"C.A.S.T." Award.

"Colorado State Troopers are renowned for their courage, quick thinking
and action in situations where lives are at stake," said Subsentio CEO
and Founder Steve Bock. "It is an honor to recognize their valor and pay
tribute to this year's winners of the C.A.S.T. Award."

Bock will join hosts Chief Matt Packard, Deputy Chief Mark Savage and
members of the C.A.S.T. Board of Directors at the Colorado Governor's
mansion in presenting awards to the following six members of the
Colorado State Patrol:

  • Sergeant Matthew Beaudin and Trooper Wesley Kartus. While
    investigating the theft of an automobile in a residential
    neighborhood, Troopers Beaudin and Kartus, together with detectives
    from two other law enforcement agencies, cornered the thief and
    ordered him to the ground. The suspect wheeled, pulled a 9mm pistol
    and began firing. Troopers Beaudin and Kartus quickly drew their
    weapons and returned fire, preventing potential lethal harm to area
    residents. For their heroic actions, Troopers Beaudin and Kardus were
    awarded the Medal of Valor.
  • Trooper John Stark. Responding to a report of a drunken driver,
    Officer Stark pulled the man over, and immediately found himself
    face-to-face with the driver's handgun. Stark quickly stepped back,
    drew his own weapon and fired, hitting the man twice. The driver then
    jumped into his truck and fled – so fast that he lost control, struck
    the raised median strip, and flew to the opposite side of the highway.
    As Officer Stark approached the drunken driver once again, the man
    this time threw his vehicle into reverse to run him over. Shotgun in
    hand, Stark fired and brought the man's life-threatening behavior – a
    menace to all on the road – to an end. For his courage and cool-headed
    action under mortal threat, Officer Stark was awarded the Medal of
  • Trooper Charles Jones. When a suspect in two recent Arizona
    murders crossed his path, Trooper Jones recognized the vehicle and
    took up the pursuit. At the sight of flashing police lights, the
    suspect hit the accelerator and crossed over the median strip straight
    into oncoming traffic. Jones executed a tactical vehicle intervention
    (TVI) maneuver to stop and cuff him. Interrogation revealed that the
    man had been en route to kill his ex-girlfriend when apprehended.
    Ballistics tests of a weapon found in his car proved he was indeed the
    Arizona murderer. For bringing this extremely dangerous felon into
    custody, Trooper Jones was honored with the Distinguished Service Award
  • Troopers Kristopher Kuba and Jordan Tinajera. First came the
    crash, then the real-life bumper-car ride of a vehicle rolling
    end-over-end into rushing water. Next thing he knew, the senior
    citizen involved in this accident found himself floating downstream.
    First on the scene at Clear Creek that frigid day in November 2017 was
    Trooper Tinajera, who quickly tied two rescue ropes to the guardrail
    and moved down the icy bank. Trooper Kuba arrived next, and with the
    help of a passerby they lifted the elderly driver out of the water so
    emergency crews could winch him up the bank to a waiting ambulance.
    With a core body temperature of just 78 degrees, the oldster was not
    expected to live. But when Trooper Tinajera followed up at the local
    hospital the next day, he was amazed to find the man sitting up in his
    ICU bed and talking. For their life- saving actions, Troopers Tinajera
    and Kuba received the Life Saving Award.
