Mission Statement :

Protect the life and property and maintain peace and order through the vigilant enforcement of the law, and the relentless effort to bring to justice those who prey upon the innocent while demonstrating the highest level of Courage, Honor, Integrity, and Professionalism.

The Patrol Division provides law enforcement 24/7 to the residents of unincorporated Douglas County, the city of Castle Pines and the town of Larkspur. Patrol strives to control crime and improve the quality of life in our community.

Deputies patrol about 1,131 miles of roadway. Most of the calls for service come from the most populated communities like Highlands Ranch, Roxborough, Castle Pines, the Pinery, and Stonegate. We use community and problem-oriented policing.

The 844 square miles of the county is divided into 12 districts. See a map of our districts.  A significant percentage of the county’s population lives in the upper northern area of the county. Over 70% of the county’s population lives in unincorporated areas. District 8, which is our rural/mountain area is 243 square miles and includes the Pike National Forest and nearby private residences. District 8 is patrolled by two deputies who live in the area.
