    Mission Statement

    The Mission of the Teller County Sheriff’s Office is to enhance the quality of life in Teller County by working cooperatively with the diverse communities to enforce the laws of the United States Constitution and the State of Colorado. We will strive to reduce the incidences of crime, preserve the peace , and provide a safe community. It is our sworn duty to serve with dignity, honor and respect, while at all times conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards to maintain public trust.

    Code of Ethics

    We believe in the preservation of basic human rights and maintenance of individual dignity under the rule and spirit of law which dictates that the ends do not always justify the means and that punishment is not a function of the police.
    We believe in proactive team management, open communication and personnel input as a part of the policy and procedure formulation process.
    We all recognize that once a decision is taken it is critical that everyone, even those who may hold a contrary view, must work together to achieve department goals.  We believe in providing, empathetic, responsible and professional service to citizens and visitors alike to ensure the quality of life enjoyed in our rustic communities. The citizens of Teller County have endowed us with a public trust. We honor that trust by holding ourselves to the highest standards of professional conduct, wholly subscribing to the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics.
    As members of the Law Enforcement Community a great deal more is expected of us than of those in other pursuits. Therefore, we hold that our actions shall be professional, reasonable, exemplary and consistent with the spirit and
    word of this philosophy, Constitution of the United States, laws of the State of Colorado and Ordinances
    of the County of Teller.
