The Red Rocks Police Department was first commissioned as the Community College of Denver Red Rocks Campus Public Safety Office, back in the 1970's. Prior to that time, we were a non-sworn security service. We've been apart of the Red Rocks community from the very beginning.

Now, we have a Chief of Police, an Administrative Assistant, up to 10 Police Officers, up to 3 Reserve Officers, up to 4 non-sworn Security Officers, and 5 Dispatchers. All of our Police Officers are certified by the Colorado Commission of Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) and exercise full law enforcement authority.

We provide a number of services to the college community. First and foremost, we are responsible for law enforcement and public safety on our campus. As such, we are the primary emergency response agency for Red Rocks, responding to crimes, traffic accidents, medical emergencies, and safety hazards. We are also responsible for opening the building in the morning and locking it down at night. In addition, we provide general assistance to the college community, such as guest presentations for classes, assisting disabled persons to and from the parking lots, escorting students to their cars after dark, jumpstarting car batteries, changing tires, opening locked cars, and delivering emergency messages.
