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.
The Silverthorne Police Department is committed to community policing principles. This approach to law enforcement seeks to reduce crime, fear of crime, and public disorder through problem solving strategies and police-community partnership. A fundamental shift from traditional reactive policing, community policing seeks to prevent crime before it occurs.
Employees are trained in problem solving, crime prevention, and proactive analysis of safety issues affecting our community. There are many community policing programs currently in place within the town, which were implemented as a direct result of problems identified.
