The Breckenridge Police Department is organized into four (4) divisions:
• Police Administration & Records
The Administration Division, which includes a Records Supervisor and an Administrative Analyst, who report directly to the Chief of Police, is responsible for several key administrative activities: Overall direction and evaluation of police services in the community, public information, professional standards, records management, statistical analysis, planning and oversight, budget management, performance management, and special research projects. The Records Administrative Specialist is responsible for maintaining registration information and verifying residence and employment on all known sex offenders and parolees residing within the Town of Breckenridge.
The Patrol Division is managed by Sergeants who report directly to the Assistant Chief of Police. This division is responsible for the initial and immediate response to various types of calls from citizens and visitors to Breckenridge. This team focuses on community oriented policing efforts, the enforcement of laws, and the safety, education, and protection of the community. For a list of community organizations in which the Police Department participates, please see the Community Oriented Policing page.

• Community Service & Parking
The Community Service & Parking Division is managed by a Patrol Sergeant who reports directly to the Chief of Police. Non-sworn Community Service Officers (CSO’s) perform a variety of field and administrative duties in support of the department’s community oriented approach to code and parking enforcement.
CSO staff patrol the town in a vehicle, on foot or bicycle and work with the community to identify, educate and enforce municipal code and other violations related to parking, animal control, trash, and junk/abandoned vehicles. They also address other quality of life and community issues through their contacts with the public.
During peak tourist seasons, CSO’s spend a good portion of their time engaged in parking education and enforcement, as well as assisting with traffic flow in the community.
