The Red Rocks Community College Campus Police Department

Red Rocks Community College Campus Police Department was established in 1986 with only one Chief of Police and one Officer. Today the Red Rocks Campus Police Department currently has a Chief, a Sergeant, and five full-time officers.

RRPD is a full service Police Department and is responsible for providing law enforcement services and ensuring public safety throughout both the Lakewood campus and Arvada Health Sciences campus.  We take great pride in ensuring that all students, staff, faculty, and visitors have a safe and secure campus, free of crime and safety hazards.

Our department strives to build strong and effective community partnerships. These relationships allow us to work together to reduce crime and enhance the quality of life and education for those who attend or visit Red Rocks.
