Committed to the Community Through Quality of Service
On November 1, 1861, William Gilpin, first Governor of Colorado Territory, approved the creation of Gilpin County and the establishment of Central City as it's county seat. 


The Gilpin County Sheriff's Office has been proudly serving the community ever since.

The Gilpin County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division provides deputies to patrol the unincorporated areas of Gilpin County, 24 hours a day – 7 days a week.


Our primary function is to enforce the laws of the nation, state and county, within the limitations of police authority and constitutional rights.


Deputies respond to emergencies and requests for assistance, as well as enforce criminal and traffic laws.
