Letter: APD is on the move

On Aug. 15, we invited the community to participate in an a police department open house. Our goal was to illustrate the state of our current facilities and to invite community feedback.

I would like to say thank you from all of us here at the police department for the overwhelming response and support we received from the community! We were deeply appreciative of the number of people that took time out of their day to visit with us, take a tour and share in our barbecue.

As many of you are aware, we have to move out of our current space in the basement of the county courthouse and design, build and move into a new facility by the beginning of 2018.

We look forward to hearing what members of the community have to say regarding a new police facility as we work through the design process. If you missed the opportunity to visit us at the open house, please stop by at any time and we would be happy to show you around.

Chief of police, Aspen Police Department
