Public Safety

Sheriff Vehicle

Centennial is one of the safest cities in Colorado and in the country.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office is the law enforcement agency for the City of Centennial. 

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office has implemented a variety of innovative measures to ensure the challenges associated with providing exceptional public safety services are effectively accomplished, along with a serious focus on the responsibility of being good stewards of Centennial tax dollars.

On May 20, 2019, City Council approved amendments to the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with Arapahoe County for law enforcement services. These amendments result in a more specific agreement that provides flexibility and additional detail for the City and County. View the recent IGA

In January 2019, the City Manager informed City Council the City would conduct a feasibility study to have a better understanding of the required components to stand up an in-house police department. The report informs City Council on issues and key functions to consider such as staffing, equipment, building/space, accreditation along with a variety of options and budget estimates. Centennial has previously conducted contract assessments and a comparison of law enforcement services with a local peer city. However, these assessments did not provide a cost estimate for what it would take to stand up our own police department. Therefore, the City commissioned this feasibility study to determine cost and compare it with the current model. View the feasibility study.
