The Silverthorne Police Department is a small progressive police agency located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, we are a group of innovative problem solvers, and the true beauty of working with such a small well-educated group is: “we can think it today…and do it tomorrow”. All of our actions and interactions are truly guided by our simple Core Value Statement: We will police others as we would want to be policed; and we will treat others as we would want to be treated”. These are not just words on a wall, it’s part of who we are, it’s our culture and our most fundamental belief. On that note, we occasionally need bright talented people who have a spirit of service. If this is you, and the idea of working in one of the most beautiful places in the world interests you, then give us a call.

For those of you not familiar with the Town of Silverthorne, we are truly the gateway to the western slope of Colorado. Our recreational and cultural opportunities are second to none; this includes our close proximity to world class ski areas, mountain biking, a state of the art recreation center and our performing arts center, fly fishing on the Blue River which runs through our community, and an endless supply of shopping opportunities. We are a vibrant community, that truly cares about the people that serve it……..

Mission Statement

The mission of the Silverthorne Police Department is to enhance the quality of life within the town by working closely with citizens in the development and delivery of professional police services.

Vision

The Silverthorne Police Department will:

  • Strive to maintain its close knit "family" connections with the department members and the Town staff, and will make a concerted effort to continue its measured growth in size and diversity based upon the needs and expectations of the community.
  • Have a strong national reputation for innovation and quality in Community Policing Initiatives.
  • Become a foundation agency within Summit County through recruitment and retention of quality personnel, planned and progressive training opportunities, deployment of effective technology, and concerted efforts to collaborate with neighboring law enforcement agencies.

Values

The Silverthorne Police Department earnestly believes that these stated values act as the foundation qualities, which insure our successful navigation through the difficult terrain associated with delivering quality police services. These are the behaviors we value and are committed to as we work together:

  • Integrity - An outward expression of our actions and beliefs, consistent with our core values, that instills trust.
  • Teamwork - Working together toward organizational success without concern for who receives the credit.
  • Compassion - Being sensitive, caring, and considerate.
  • Diversity - Each of us contributes in a special way, to make our special talents and perspectives part of the corporate effort.
  • Respect - Objective, unbiased consideration and acknowledgement of the rights, values, beliefs and property of all people and communities.
  • Innovation - We work together for creative solutions, asking the question "Is there a better way to do this?"
  • Professionalism - A conscientious awareness of our role, image, skill and knowledge in our commitment to quality, community-oriented service.
