  Mr. TIPTON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Sgt. Warren Watts 
of Pueblo, Colorado. Sgt. Watts was a highly respected and 
distinguished 18-year veteran of the Pueblo County Sheriff's 
Department, who tragically passed away last Saturday at the age of 53, 
after falling ill during his routine morning jog.
  One of Pueblo County's finest, Sgt. Watts spent much of his career in 
patrol and investigations. He was also the commander of the SWAT unit, 
and served for two years with the Federal Bureau of Investigation's 
Joint Terrorism Task Force. After years of outstanding service he was 
appointed to the position of Inspector of Internal Affairs.
  Sgt. Watts was recognized for his professionalism and commitment to 
the people of Pueblo County when he received the Medal of Valor in 
2004. Sgt. Warren Watt's was a devoted husband to his wife of 32 years,

and father to his daughters, Nicole and Brittany.
  Mr. Speaker, it is an honor to recognize Sgt. Warren Watts for his 
great service to the people of Pueblo County. His loss is mourned by 
many and he will be sadly missed.
