A Jefferson County (Colo.) Sheriff's Office sergeant was killed on U.S. Highway 285 near Conifer Saturday after he stopped to help another motorist.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said Sergeant Sean Renfro was off duty when he stopped to help a motorist. Renfro was a 15-year veteran of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, ABC 7 reports.

According to Mark Techmeyer with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, Sgt. Renfro was directing traffic after an accident in the area.

Thank you for your service and God rest your soul. You are an example of the caring, dedicated American Police Officer who even off duty is there to help others. This is the true picture folks should have of Law Enforcement, not the false example that the anti -police folks promote. Thank you .
