Vail Police Department

The Department addresses crime, disorder, road safety and quality of life issues through proactive measures, education, enforcement and investigation. Its four divisions include: the Office of the Chief of Police, Operations, Administration and Public Safety Communications Center.  

Police Chief Dwight Henninger has been with the town since January 2002 after serving with the Laguna Beach Police Department in California as Captain.  (Read a letter from the Chief.)
