Welcome to Vail, North America's Premier International Mountain Resort Community

Crime and Traffic

Our commitment is to address crime in all categories utilizing several forms of prevention and intervention strategies, as well as links with partner agencies.  

These approaches include high visibility, intelligence-led initiatives, community-based policing measures, and high performance work teams.  We are proud of the results of our efforts and the outcome from our community service survey showing a high level of trust and confidence in our service.
