Who We Are

The Aspen Police Department serves the unique mountain town and community of Aspen, Colorado. Our team serves the full-time and visiting populations nestled within the four square miles of the Roaring Fork Valley.

We serve with the guiding philosophy to build consenting relationships within our community and garner mutual trust, and we work to enhance the safety and feeling of security for residents and visitors alike through effective crime prevention and overall care. The public is the police, and the police are members of the public.
