K-9 Unit

We have just introduced our new K-9 Unit to the Department on Oct 1, 2017.  Jaxx will be a valuable asset in helping officers with drug enforcement and in tracking.  You can see a picture of Jaxx and read his bio on the Officers Page.

New Police Vehicles

We have purchased a new 2017 Chevy Tahoe.  It has been assigned to Sgt Uhernik.  We will be adding a second 2017 Chevy Tahoe to the fleet soon. 

2017 Camp B.A.D.G.E.

The second annual Camp B.A.D.G.E. started on Sunday July 09 in Silt.  We had 30 cadets for the first week and multiple events going on.  Cadets received CPR and First Aid Training, used the Firearm Simulator at Colorado Mountain College, received gun safety training, saw a K-9 Demonstration, saw the Garfield County All Hazards Response Team demonstration, were educated on Marijuana, and got to see the Care Flight Helicopter.  The second week is scheduled to begin on Monday July 17th and run through Friday July 21.  Click the link below to see pictures from the camp.

We will be holding our Third Coffee with a Cop event at Misty's on Friday December 30, 2016 at 8:30am.  Hope to see everyone there!

Coffee with a Cop

We recently held Silt's first Coffee with a Cop event.  Silt Police Officers as well as residents met at Misty's Coffee Shop in Silt on Fri Sept 23.  Anyone who attended got a free thin blue line bracelet and stickers were given to the kids.  It was a great turn out and hopefully we can schedule another one soon.  Thanks Misty for the opportunity!!

Coal Ridge Forensic Class Does Mock Crime Scene

On Sept 17th, several seniors from Coal Ridge High School joined Officer Uhernik in Veterns Park to create a Mock Crime Scene as part of a project.  The students had to mark off the crime scene, take pictures, and document and collect evidence.  A video was made by the students for the project showing the steps they took to investigate the scene.  It was a great learning experience and an awesome relationship builder.  Pictures


Camp B.A.D.G.E

Both June and July Sessions for Camp B.A.D.G.E. were a huge success.  We had a total of 50 kids sign up and attend.  It was such a success that the kids from camp have been invited to walk in the Silt Heydays Parade on July 30 at 10am.  You can view pictures and video from camp by clicking on the Camp B.A.D.G.E. link on the right.  We are planning camp again next summer which will start in June.  Check back periodically for information regarding sign ups.
