About Community Policing

The Cañon City Police Department is a full service, state-accredited, contemporary and progressive law enforcement agency dedicated to community policing. We take pride in forming community partnerships, treating all people fairly, being in strict compliance with constitutional standards and reducing the fear of crime throughout our community by utilizing the latest in crime prevention techniques and enforcement initiatives. The Cañon City Police Department (CCPD) currently consists of over 50 professionals who are dedicated to providing public safety and has been providing excellence in police services for over 100 hundred years.


CCPD actively supports a Community Policing Philosophy. Police Officers are encouraged to work with individuals and organizations in the community to make our community safer. We engage in problem-solving whenever the opportunity exists to do so. The Police Department hosts a variety of community programs to build a strong bond with all members of the community. These programs include:


Finally, CCPD conducts telephone surveys to gauge community satisfaction with our policing services. The telephone surveys are conducted by Criminal Justice students from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Our surveys are rated on a scale of 1 through 5 (with 5 being the highest rating). Our 2014 overall rating was 4.9. Please feel free to take our online survey. We appreciate your assistance.
