Crime Prevention & Deterrence
The Durango Police Department prides itself on being a full-service law enforcement agency. This means we respond to all calls for service, no matter how minor, and take reports on all criminal activity regardless of severity and loss amounts. The one exception to this is insufficient funds checks which are referred to the Sixth Judicial District Attorney’s Office for the Bounceback Program.

The overall objective of the Durango Police Department is to promote the safety of the community and a feeling of security among the citizens, primarily through the deterrence / prevention of crime and the apprehension of offenders, providing service in a fair, honest, prompt, and courteous manner to the satisfaction of the citizenry.
