Steamboat Springs is a special place with a close-knit and supportive community. Few towns can match the incredible beauty and lifestyle Steamboat Springs offers. Whether you enjoy the Yampa River, our mountains, or our lakes, there is plenty to enjoy during your off time. Winter is a time for our staff to spend their off days skiing, mountain biking, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and much more. Summers are full of hiking, fishing, camping, more mountain biking, water sports, etc. And if the outdoors aren’t enough, we have over a hundred special events and activities, art and music to enjoy! We embrace a balanced lifestyle! 

We welcome you to join the Steamboat Springs Police Department team!
