Hoeven Honors Fallen Deputy Colt Allery on Senate Floor

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven spoke today on the floor of the U.S. Senate to honor Rolette County Sheriff Deputy Colt Allery, who was killed in the line of duty on January 18.

“Deputy Allery was dedicated to serving the public and spent the last five years working in law enforcement,” said Hoeven. “His colleagues remember him for his friendly and positive disposition and his commitment to making his community and our state safer. He was also well-known in St. John – the tight-knit community where he was raised by his grandparents – for always serving his friends and family. They say Colt was happiest when he was doing for others – which is why he chose law enforcement for his career.

“Deputy Allery’s life is a reminder to each of us of the enormous debt we owe to all of the men and women in law enforcement who leave home every day and go to work to protect our communities and make our state a place we’re proud to call home.”
