Remembering Patrolman Carhart and Sergeant Alcorn

Please take a moment to include Patrolman Nicholas A. Carhart and Sergeant Albert M. Alcorn in your thoughts today.

Patrolman Carhart and Sergeant Alcorn were killed January 23, 1966 in a crash while on normal patrol assignment. Alcorn was conducting a training and evaluation on duty tour to observe rookie Carhart’s performance. The patrol car was eastbound on Colorado 72 when it went out of control on a curve. The car ran off the road and rolled. Both officers were fatally injured. The exact cause of the accident was never determined.

Carhart entered the Patrol November 1, 1965; Alcorn entered the Patrol October 1, 1953.
