The Basalt Police Department is a community oriented policing agency with eleven people on staff. Our department is full-service agency that investigates all criminal activity in the Town of Basalt. The police department is located at 20 School Street in Basalt and is part of the fire station located on the 23000 blk of Two Rivers Road next to the Basalt Middle School.
We serve an incorporated population of 3000+ people with a weekday transient population in excess of 40,000 people during the valley high season. We work very closely with both the Eagle and Pitkin County Sheriff’s Departments and has developed with them an effective and efficient response assistance procedure with them. This has helped all three agencies to bring effective law enforcement to not only the Town of Basalt but the surrounding county population.
