Brad Leach

Brad Leach (1970-1990)

Was the first Democrat to hold the position in nearly two generations. He moved quickly to restore confidence in the organization, and gradually earned the public's trust. He was re-elected to four subsequent terms before retiring in 1990.

Brad was 29 years old at the time and had six years of experience in law enforcement. He was a Boulder Police officer, but had to resign to run for sheriff. He worked in the District Attorney' Office as Chief Investigator, and prior to that, had worked as a patrol deputy for the Adams County Sheriff's Office. He started his career with the Boulder Police Department as a member of the "Special Police" in their Reserve organization.
