Fort Collins Police Services is the law enforcement branch of the City government. One of our primary objectives is to provide a safe, secure community environment for all residents. Fort Collins Police serve the community by protecting life and property, preserving peace and order, preventing and detecting crime, enforcing laws and ordinances, and promoting the safe, efficient use of the City's streets and highways. Fort Collins Police Services has increased its emphasis on Community Oriented Policing (COPS) as the preferred means of addressing community needs.
The department consists of four specialized divisions: the Office of the Chief, Patrol Services, Investigative Services, and Information Services.
