Message from the Chief

The Sherry-3Steamboat Springs Police Department is comprised of 29 sworn and 15 professional staff men and women. We are dedicated to keeping our community safe, providing quality police service, and working with our citizens and businesses.

We prioritize engaging with our community to address and solve public safety issues. We value our numerous partnerships with non-profits, youth groups, schools, event managers, Ski Corp, the medical and mental health community, and the many others we work with to keep Steamboat Springs safe and to ensure our citizens enjoy a strong quality of life. We appreciate the exceptional support we receive from our city and community! 

Are you interested in joining our team? It takes a special person to enter our noble law enforcement profession. We are always looking for excellent candidates with a desire to serve their community for both our sworn officer and professional staff positions. Policing is an incredibly rewarding profession. I encourage you to explore our website and apply today to become part of our team and part of our family. 

Steamboat Springs is a special place with a close-knit and supportive community. Few towns can match the incredible beauty and lifestyle Steamboat Springs offers. Whether you enjoy the Yampa River, our mountains, or our lakes, there is plenty to enjoy during your off time. Winter is a time for our staff to spend their off days skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and much more. Summers are full of hiking, fishing, camping, mountain biking, water sports, etc. And if the outdoors aren’t enough, we have over a hundred special events and activities, art and music to enjoy! We embrace a balanced lifestyle! 

The men and women of the Steamboat Springs Police Department are honored and proud to serve the Steamboat Springs community!
