The Idaho Springs Police Department’s mission is to provide police and public safety services to a town whose population is diverse. Our mission, “Commitment to Integrity and Safety through constitutional Policing and Dedication to our community,” guides our culture within the organization. The total residential population is approximately 1800, however the summer and winter season see a large increase in seasonal employees and surge of visiting outdoor enthusiasts. The department is heavily engaged in community policing and facilitating a desirable quality of life for all citizens. All officers are expected to embrace the principles of the “guardian style” of policing which take into account the dignity of all patrons, victims, stakeholders, and offenders. Stakeholder input is frequently solicited, and community feedback is valued.
