Welcome to the De Soto Police Department. We have
provided information on our site as a service to the
citizens of De Soto. We hope that you find the
information useful. We have also included links to
other locations that would provide more in depth
information regarding specific areas of interest.
The Police Department is just one branch of the
Department of Public Safety. There are 15
Full-time Police Officers currently employed with the
City that work a rotating 12-hour shift. Officers
on duty are responsible for patrolling the city,
responding to calls for service and assume a proactive
role to prevent crimes before they happen. Each
squad is supervised by a Sergeant or a Lieutenant.
Several officers are also cross trained as Firefighters
to assist the De Soto Fire Department as needed.
The Police Department has a Communications Division that
is responsible for dispatching Police to calls as
required. Calls that come into our 911 center for
EMS and Fire are immediately transferred to Jeffco 911
where appropriate personnel are dispatched.
