Why Arvada PD?

The Arvada Police Department has been setting the standard of excellence since 1945. Named a CALEA Flagship agency, the Arvada PD prides itself on its dedication to accreditation, internal standards, and strong community relationships. Here’s how we do it:

Training and Equipment

Providing world-class training for rescues, driving, firearms, and more, along with cutting-edge mobile technology, state-of-the-art cars, and uncompromising safety gear.


Our department has been CALEA certified since 1986 and every one of our officers has a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Community Policing

Strong community relations make us who we are. We’re in touch with those we serve 24/7 in-person and online.

Right Size, Right Place

The Arvada PD is the right size with room to grow. Located minutes from Denver and the Rocky Mountains, it is an idyllic location.
