SUBJECT: Letter from the Chief of Police
The Fort Carson Police Department is an effective, skilled, and progressive organization which consistently trains in Law Enforcement response. We will continue to live out our mission of partnering with our community to protect our citizens, while respecting the rights and dignity of all persons. Our officers and professional staff possess the highest standards of personal and professional integrity, enabling them to prevent crime, enforce our laws, work as community problem-solvers, and serve as examples.
When a crime, or senseless act, is committed we may never know the “why this happened”, but we will continue to promote seeking additional help for those who truly need it. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it is a display of strength to say, “I’m not okay and I’m going to do something about it!” Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you ever need any assistance.
With March winding down, we would like you to remember that mental health awareness is not just one month out of the year. We are always here to listen or provide resources to anyone who needs it. Another option is to call or text 988 for mental health resources 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Every day, I am proud to work with such people who make a significant, positive difference in our community. We strive to remain at the forefront of modern policing practices in honor of this proud tradition and the trust placed in us by the community.
Chief of Police
