Back the Blue Colorado
On the 12th anniversary of his LODD, we honor and remember the service and sacrifice of Colorado Springs Police Department Detective Jared Scott Jensen. Our hearts and prayers go out to your family, both blood and blue. We will never forget.
Detective Jared Jensen was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a parolee who was wanted for attempted murder.
Detective Jensen radioed dispatch that he had spotted the suspect near the intersection of Costilla Street and Hancock ...Avenue and that he was going to make contact with the suspect. After approaching the suspect, Detective Jensen was shot once in the face. Detective Jensen fell to the ground, and the suspect stood over him and shot him again in the face.
Four minutes later citizens called to report a shooting. Responding officers located Detective Jensen on the sidewalk suffering from two gunshot wounds. He was transported to Memorial Hospital where he succumbed to his wounds.
The suspect was apprehended by FBI and ATF agents following a massive manhunt and was subsequently convicted of second degree murder. On May 5, 2008, he was sentenced to 96 years in prison.
Detective Jensen had served with the Colorado Springs Police Department for 3.5 years. He is survived by his wife, parents, brother, sister, two step-brothers, and two step-sisters. One of his brothers also serves with the Colorado Springs Police Department.
