Officer_and_fisher-boy[1].jpgCommunity Involvement
It is the Durango Police Department's belief that community policing involves building community partnerships and creative problem solving. The Durango Police Department emphasizes the community policing philosophy through all phases of its operation. 

The Durango Police Department offers numerous programs in an effort to open communication and partnerships with the community. We recognize that police are not separate from the people and that we derive our authority from the people, yet many members of the community do not have a thorough understanding of our mission and duties. We offer several programs including the Ride-Along Program and Citizens Police Academy that allow the participants to gain insight into how their police department functions.
