Weld County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division welcomes new deputy, K9

Posted on 03/13/2020

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office has added a K9 team to the patrol division, bringing the agency’s total number of K9 handlers to six.

Deputy Sean Jenneiahn and K9 Kenzi joined the sheriff’s office earlier this month from the Lafayette Police Department. Jenneiahn and Kenzi join four other K9 teams on the patrol side of the agency. There is one K9 team detailed to the Weld County Jail.

Jenneiahn has more than 21 years of law enforcement experience, beginning his career as a detentions deputy with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in California. He then spent five and a half years on patrol with the Stockton Police Department, also in California. The city of Stockton is about 80 miles east of San Francisco and about 50 miles south of Sacramento.

In 2005, Jenneiahn moved to Colorado where spent two years with the Firestone Police Department. In 2007, Jenneiahn went to the Lafayette Police Department where he spent the last 13 years as a traffic officer. He is a Level 3 Accident Reconstructionist and served Lafayette police as a corporal and as a K9 handler.

Jenneiahn has had three K9s in his career, including Arco, Zeus and Kenzi. The sheriff’s office was already familiar with Jenneiahn and Kenzi, as they have been training with Weld County K9 handlers for the last four years. Kenzi is certified under the same organization used by the sheriff’s office, which made for a smooth transition to Weld County from Lafayette.

When he’s not at work, Jenneiahn golfs and plays drums in his Country music band “Buckstein.”
