The trifecta of the Police, Fire, and Sheriff’s department brings a comfort and overwhelming sense of security for the community. The same can be said for John San Agustin, Joshua D. Webb, and Rhonda Yohn, the 2013 Hundred Club of Colorado Springs award recipients. Without these men and women who serve the city tirelessly our lives and community would be vastly different. On Wednesday, October 2, Hundred Club of Colorado held its annual banquet to extend its thanks, respect, and gratitude for the hard work of these exceptional individual winners.

Inspector John San Agustin's career with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office began in 1995 when he was asked to volunteer his time and expertise as a Crime Multimedia Specialist in the Staskiewicz/Carpenter homicide investigation. As a result, he was hired by the El Paso County Sheriff's Office in January of 1998 to work in the Investigations Division as a Crime Multimedia Specialist. For the last 15 years, John has been involved with almost every death investigation in El Paso County Sheriff's Office jurisdiction analyzing and reconstructing each case John does not look at his job as work; he views it as a passion to find the answers, defending those who cannot defend themselves any longer and above all as a quest for justice.
