Coldwell Banker High Country Realty has begun a new program to publicly recognize the exceptional efforts of law enforcement officers in each of the five communities we serve. The new program is called “Back The Blue,” and is anticipated to be awarded up to three times per year in each community.

The first recipient of the award in Fannin County is Deputy Dustin Carder of the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office. Deputy Carder is a canine (K9) officer focused on drug detection and interdiction.

He was presented the honor October 10 at a company-wide meeting of agents and management from all five Coldwell Banker High Country area offices. On hand to support Deputy Carder was his wife Sara and his canine partner, Lucho.

Sheriff Dane Kirby, who nominated Deputy Carder, was present as well to share some glowing words of commendation for Deputy Carder’s consistently exceptional service and said, “When Deputy Carder is on the streets, the bad guys get nervous.”
