Welcome To Cañon City, Colorado

Welcome to Cañon City, the "Gate to the Authentic West." Our community has a rich cultural heritage and interesting geologic history. We embrace our past and are planning an exciting future. Ours is a truly special community, with abundant recreational opportunities, vast open space from the plains to the Rocky Mountains, parks and trails, community events all year long, and of course the Arkansas River and the Royal Gorge. If you live here you know what I mean. If you are considering relocating your home or business, you will discover it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to seeing you around town or out on the trail. Mayor Tony Greer

National Night Out Against Crime Community Picnic at Rudd Park on August 4th!

NNO  LogoOn Tuesday, August 4th from 5:00-7:00pm, Cañon City Police Department will be celebrating National Night Out Against Crime with a community picnic at Rudd Park. All Cañon City residents are invited to attend to celebrate our community and learn skills to prevent crime to keep Cañon City a safe place to live, work and play. We will have free hotdogs, water and pop, snowcones, games, door prizes (including bicycles!), face painting and lots of useful information from our many local supporters. National Night Out  Against Crime has taken place on the first Tuesday in August throughout America for 32 years and this will be CCPD’s second year hosting one in Cañon City.

There are many ways to prevent crime; locking your doors and removing your valuables, locking your bicycles and trailers, keeping your property sight lines clear and landscaping neat, and of course watching out for each other and reporting suspicious activity. 

If you don’t already have plans to celebrate National Night Out, please come out to Rudd Park on August 4th and show your support for Cañon City and our safe, wonderful way of life. We’ll see you there!

Cañon City Police Department Selected to be on National Cybercrime Law Enforcement Committee

The Cañon City Police Department has been notified by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) that our agency has been selected to be on the national cybercrime law enforcement committee. Five law enforcement agencies of various sizes were selected from throughout the United States to advise the IACP on cybercrime issues. We are the only Colorado law enforcement agency asked to participate in this prestigious committee. Our first assignment is to review the IACP cybercrime website and offer suggestions to maximize its effectiveness.

When asked how we were selected, the IACP representatives stated that due to the excellent reputation of the Cañon City Police Department as a community policing agency that they wanted to take full advantage of our experience and skills. This is quite an honor for the CCPD.
