This week’s Comfort Heating and Air Salute to Service honoree is Roger Soldan.


The Salina native has worked in law enforcement for more than 30 years and currently serves as Saline County Sheriff. Soldan entered the law enforcement profession in the Salina Police Department's cadet program. He later switched to the Saline County Sheriff's Office, where he has served as an adult corrections officer, patrol deputy, traffic safety officer, criminal investigator, jail administrator, undersheriff, and now sheriff.


Congratulations, Roger, on being selected as this week’s Comfort Heating and Air Salute to Service honoree! Thank you for your service!


Each week during the NFL regular season, Comfort Heating and Air will salute a member of our military, a local police officer, member of the fire department, a paramedic, or other first responder, honoring those everyday heroes who keep our community safe!


Honorees receive dinner and dessert for two from Chic-fil-A and are put in a random drawing to attend the Chiefs vs. Chargers game on Dec. 29 at Arrowhead Stadium. The grand prize includes lower level tickets to the game, VIP, 2 nights’ hotel stay at the Holiday Inn Kansas City Downtown, and a Chiefs fan pack valued at more than $1,000.
