ABOUT JOHN FEYEN

John is committed to our community and public service. He has dedicated his entire adult life to serving others in their moment of need through his various roles in emergency services.

CAREER OF SERVICE

In 1987, John started his service as a paramedic in the Kansas City, MO metropolitan area. Four years later, John and his wife moved to Larimer County where he continued serving the citizens of Loveland, Berthoud, and the Big Thompson Canyon as a paramedic/firefighter.

In 2000, John was called to serve his community in another way and joined the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO). His first two years were spent serving in the Estes Valley as a patrol deputy. John then moved to investigations as a Crimes Against Persons investigator where he discovered a deep passion for helping child victims. John’s investigative and leadership skills earned him promotions to sergeant, and eventually lieutenant, leading the day-to-day operations of the LCSO Investigations Division.  

While most of John’s time at LCSO was spent in investigations, he also served the citizens of Wellington as the sergeant of the LCSO Wellington Squad.  In 2013, when the Berthoud Police Department failed to meet community expectations, the Berthoud Board of Trustees appointed John the Interim Police Chief which later resulted in the Town of Berthoud contracting with LCSO for law enforcement services.

During his time at LCSO, John gained invaluable experience not often achieved by those with only town or city police experience. John led evacuation efforts in Rist Canyon, Poudre Canyon, and Redstone Canyon during the 2012 High Park Fire and served as Law Command on many occasions.  On the first day of the 2013 flood, John again led evacuations and later was on the first helicopter into Pinewood Springs to provide support to the community. He also led a FEMA Rescue Team into Waltonia Canyon to help locate and rescue those stranded by the flood.

In 2019, John accepted an offer to serve the citizens of Fort Collins as an Assistant Chief with Fort Collins Police Services. In that time, John has led the Patrol Division, Special Operations Division, and the Information Services Division within Police Services.

COMMITMENT TO LEARNING

John has a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership and Development from CSU – Global and is a graduate of Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command and Police Executive Research Forum’s Senior Management Institute for Policing.

VOLUNTEER EFFORTS

John’s passion for service, especially a desire to provide a future of possibilities for our children, carries over to his personal life. For the past nine years, John has volunteered as an Executive Board Member for the Windsor Charter Academy, many of them as the Board President.

 

As a result of his commitment to help the victims of child abuse start on their path to healing, John served on the board for Voices Carry Child Advocacy Center for almost a decade.

 

JOHN'S COMMITMENT TO LARIMER COUNTY

 

PROTECTING
YOUR
RIGHTS

Our country was built on a foundation of individual freedom. John vows to uphold and protect the rights that our Constitution reserves for you and your family.

Our Country was founded on the belief that we should be governed by the people, but even then, there were natural rights inherent to the individual that a government could not legislate or infringe upon. To that end, they set forth in our Constitution the rights held most sacred to them. John believes these rights were held in such high regard for a reason and will protect them as your Sheriff.

SERVING
OUR
COMMUNITY

From natural disaster management to major case investigations and community program development, John will use his professional experience to serve our Larimer County community.

This office serves every one of the 375,000 people who call Larimer County their home. It is important we serve them equally well, and that we find and connect with those who are reluctant, for whatever reason, to access the services available to our community members.

 

LEADING
WITH
INTEGRITY

Larimer County deserves a leader with a track record of integrity and accountability. John will create an environment open to public scrutiny and welcomes input.

 

John believes that the foundation of serving as a peace officer includes doing the right thing in all situations and earning the trust and confidence of the public. This requires transparency and open communication with our community members. 

 

UPSTREAM
PROBLEM
SOLVING

Resolving complex issues require a collaborative mindset. John will partner with our communities and look at long-term solutions to the root causes of problems.

In the long-term, this will decrease the number of times law enforcement is called for this situation. ​Homelessness, mental health, and addiction are examples where we need to look at upstream problem solving as this is a community problem and not just a law enforcement problem. Repeatedly ticketing for the same issue is an ineffective solution and a poor use of taxpayer funding.
