    The best department is the one that offers more than 25k in personal liability insurance after September 3rd....

      You sound like a bitter crusty old cop, adapt to the times brother.

      Not even a cop anymore but I’m well aware as to why no one should apply in this state. Do a google search for “qualified immunity CO”. You have to wonder why no one is giving you a real answer to your question...

      I know about the bill, it’s ****ty. But there’s nothing we can do about it, people still want to serve Colorado communities.

      Well good on you. I just hope your family understands and feels the same way.

    I was not aware of this having moved from Texas back to Colorado only to be greeted with covid which froze ride alongs and department hiring processes. Add that to the growing list of questions to ask.

      There's still hope. Summit county is hiring. For detentions it's a 4 week turn around

    Denver area, take your pick. Denver, Lakewood, Lafayette are highly regarded and sought after even while being wildly different agencies. Denver tops out in 4-5 years at over 100k and is a very large agency. Lakewood requires a 4-year degree and has great pay/benefits. Lafayette is a much smaller agency that still tops out in the high 80s in 4-5 years. There are a TON of municipality agencies in the Denver Metro area that pay well and top out quickly.

    Your big dogs in Northern Colorado are going to be Greeley and Fort Collins, both topping out at ~100k/yr in 4-5 years.

    Cant speak to Southern Colorado or the Western Slope. Hope that helps.

      What would you say are the biggest difference between Lakewood and Denver besides having a 4 year degree.

      From what I’ve heard Lakewood will be more “customer service” oriented (although still a busy agency) whereas Denver really only has the time to show up and deal with in progress stuff at the patrol level. Some people express that they don’t want to just be a “number” at there agency, if that’s the case Denver probably wouldn’t be a good fit.
