[ARCHIVED] SSP Start Move to New Combined Law Enforcement Building

CLEF NewsFlash 6.13.19

The Steamboat Springs Police Department (SSPD) will be on the move from June 17-21 as the unit travels the two miles from its current building at 840 Yampa Street to the new Combined Law Enforcement Building at 2027 Shield Drive, joining the Routt County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO).

“It’s been a long time in the making, but we’re more than ready to get this part of the transition under way,” said Police Chief Cory Christensen. “I want to thank everyone involved in the project for getting us to this point and am really looking forward to starting our next chapter in the new location with the Sherriff’s Office.”

During this phase, SSPD will make adjustments to its non-emergency customer walk-in service at 840 Yampa Street for the week of June 17-21. 24/7 police patrol will continue uninterrupted; and, of course, if there is an emergency, dial 9-1-1 immediately.

The last day the Front Desk will be open for regular business will be Monday, June 17, before closing for walk-in service from Tuesday, June 18 through Friday, June 21. Customers can email or call 970.879.4344 for assistance during the closure. In addition, information, forms and documents are available 24/7 on the SSPD section of the city’s website. Police services will resume at 8am on Monday, June 24 in the new location.

Once the move is complete and the facility officially opens to the public, anticipated for Monday, June 24, both law enforcement agencies will keep the following public hours, Monday through Thursday from 8am to 5pm, and Friday from 8am to noon. Citizens wishing to contact the Steamboat Springs Police will use the same telephone number, 970.879.4344 and 970.879.1090 for the RCSO.

“As with any new building, there will be a learning curve for all of us and likely refine some processes along the way so that we’re able to serve our community in the best way possible,” continued Christensen. “This building is something the entire community should take pride in and I hope becomes a community gathering place over time.”

The Combined Law Enforcement Facility (CLEF) is a joint project between the City of Steamboat Springs and Routt County, and the new headquarters for the Steamboat Springs Police, Routt County Sheriff’s Office and the Routt County Communications Center.

The $19.3M project is funded jointly between the city and county, with the city covering 60% and the county covering 40% of the CLEF facility. On top of the joint funding, a $1 million state grant was awarded to the project from DOLA.
