A Message from the Chief
As Chief of Police of the Aurora Police Department, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our Department.
I am honored and humbled to have been selected as your Chief of Police. I am committed to serving my fellow residents to the best of my ability and I accept the responsibility of ensuring that our community is provided with the best law enforcement services possible.
Fortunately for me, I work with a dedicated staff of sworn police officers, civilian employees and dispatchers that truly understand the definition of service. They work hard every day to provide the best service possible to our community
We have adopted a service oriented philosophy which embodies principles of public service and citizen input in solving our community’s problems. The members of the Aurora Police Department are committed to providing quality public service to its citizens with a commitment to professionalism, fairness, and compassion.
A priority for the police department is to continue to make our community safe and secure but we need your help to accomplish this. I encourage members of the police department and the citizens of Aurora to work together to form a partnership to keep our crime rate low.
The Aurora Police Department provides police services to the city twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
Currently the department has 22 sworn officers and eight civilian employees making up the three divisions of the department.
The Operations Division, commanded by Captain Dave Peters is made up of patrol and investivations sections.
The patrol section is the largest and most noticeable of all the sections with 16 officers. Officers of the patrol section respond to citizen's complaints, initial field investigations of crimes committed and crime prevention through targeted patrol.
The officers assigned to the patrol section are committed to serve the Cities of Aurora providing professional services to the community.
The Investigation Section is responsible for follow-up investigations of crimes which require a lengthier time to solve. The detectives are also responsible for collecting and processing evidence, especially from major crime scenes.
We are located at the Police / Fire Complex at 106 Elliott, If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call us at (417) 678-5025, or in an emergency DIAL 911.
