The Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police inducted four retired lawmen into its Hall of Fame during a Wednesday afternoon ceremony at the Wyoming Capitol.

Former Rawlins Police Chief Mike Reed, former Albany County Sheriff Jim Pond, former Torrington Police Chief Billy Janes, and former Laramie County Sheriff Danny Glick (pictured left to right) were recognized for their service to the people of Wyoming.

WASCOP's website states, "Nominees must have had an impact beyond the community they served and their influence must have been recognized statewide."

Meet the Four-Legged Heroes of the Cheyenne Police Department

They may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but make no bones about it, police dogs play a vital role in the fight against crime.

In many situations, they're the first ones to put their lives on the line to protect their human partners, proving that not all heroes wear capes, some wear fur coats.
