Aspen Police Department News

Do we read anything that isn't on our phone anymore? We encourage you to look closely at any $100s that you come into contact with. Not that we're all hauling around Benjamins, but if that's your style, please give them a good look. We've heard that some local businesses have inadvertently taken some fake bills, thinking they were the real thing. Clearly marked "fashion prop money" on the front, and "This is a copy money" on the back, the fake bills look pretty real, but only at a glance. One of the better stories was when a well-meaning local, Ray Davile, found $1500 in what looked like $100 bills in an alley. The dirty, wadded up bills looked pretty convincing and he made a beeline to the APD offices, where he turned in what he thought was somebody's cash lost in an alley. Once cleaned up, it too turned out to be this fake cash. We appreciate his honesty, it says a lot about his character. We just wish it was real money! Anyhow, take a moment, break out your wallet and check to make sure your cash isn't "copy money." The Aspen Police Department - Protecting the Wild West since the 1880s.

The good folks of the Citizen's Academy stopped by the PD on Thursday. The citizen's academy is offered by the city to help educate folks on how the city operates and the services offered. It's really fun, at least for us, so we just wanted to say a thank you for all the attention and the great questions. The Aspen Police Department - Protecting the Wild West since the 1880s.

Thanks Michele! Michele McClinton has been a welcoming face in our front office for the past 16 years, but yesterday was her last with us. We are happy for her as she moves to from a 18 mile commute to an easy bike ride. Here she is with City Manager Steve Barwick at her going-away / Halloween party. We will miss you!

Have you ever wanted to be a cop, but only a little bit? Do you think it might be fun to work with police, but not have to carry a gun? The Pitkin Area Co-responder Teams (PACT) program is looking for licensed clinicians (LCSW, LPC, LMFT) to partner with patrol officers/deputies in the provision of on scene mobile response, intervention, evaluation and disposition/referral for individuals with behavioral health disorders or symptoms. This means you literally would go to crime scenes, or locations where police are conducting investigations, to practice your expertise in support of local police officers. The purpose of the PACT program is to join law enforcement on mental health calls for service and, when possible, divert individuals with behavioral health disorders or symptoms from involvement in the criminal justice system, engaging them in treatment and/or social services instead. Pitkin County has partnered with Mind Springs Health to provide staff for the PACT program, and they are the ones doing the hiring. Additionally, Mind Springs is hiring for a case manager and a part-time peer specialist for the PACT program. If you or anyone you know might be interested in any of these positions please apply through this link: https://mindspringshealth.org/careers/ If you have questions please contact: Lindsay May, MA, LPC Director Mind Springs Health, Pitkin County office 970.920.5555 ext. 4057 | mobile 970.946.1775 lmay@mindspringshealth.org

We often get the question, "What's it like to work for the Aspen Police?" Well, some days it looks like talking down an aggressive mule deer whose behavior is concerning local citizens. Thanks to Officer Sumner, resident deer whisperer, we're glad to report this deer was not injured...although he was alarmingly comfortable with humans. Please keep wildlife wild, never feed wild animals!

Case closed thanks to a Facebook tipster!! Where is the one place you know there will be video cameras? Let’s go there and steal stuff! Stealing a tip jar is a new low, even for a petty thief. Whatever happened to sticking it to the man? Not the worker bee! The Aspen Police would be grateful to for any information that could help identify the two men (we're using that term loosely) seen at the checkout counter in this video. If you take look, you may notice the guy in the fashionable purple camo hat pick up the mesh tip jar off the counter before making a swift exit. The men drove off in a white 2003 Honda mini-van. Please direct any information to the Aspen Police Department at (970) 920-5400.

Do you share a similar sentiment? If so, we would like to invite you to join us on Monday, Sept. 17th at 9am for the dedication of Dorian's Room at the new Aspen Police Department, 540 E Main St in Aspen.

We didn't have ANY fun at the first annual Pitkin County Public Safety Expo on Saturday! A big shout-out to officers Leitch & Minniti who braved the dunk tank to raise some money for Special Olympics Colorado! We call that a win-win.
