On October 7, 2013 the Highlands Ranch Law Enforcement Training Foundation (HRLETF) was awarded a $10,000 grant from AT&T of Colorado. This grant will help pay for the development of instructors for the Law Fit Program. The Law Fit Program was developed at George Mason University and is used by several law enforcement agencies throughout the nation to include Colorado. This program is designed to screen applicant peace officers and to help keep veteran officers in better physical and mental condition.
AT&T President Bill Soards, announced the funding was granted to HRLETF to support tuition costs related to this program and some health equipment improvements at the training facility.

Board of Director Members; Sheriff David A. Weaver, Undersheriff Tony Spurlock, Bureau Chief Holly Kluth are extremely supportive of both the Law Fit Program and the efforts of the training foundation.
