Letter from Melanie Thornton, Adam Sector Commander

Hello,

My name is Melanie Thornton, and I am your Adam Sector Commander. 

I have worked for the Arvada Police Department since 2000, and have served in several assignments within the Department during my law enforcement career. In addition to Patrol, I have served in the Field Training Program, the Critical Accident Response Team, Crisis Intervention Team, the Criminal Investigations Bureau, and others.

I am honored and privileged to serve as a Commander for the Arvada Police Department and to be operating from the Lake Arbor Community Station. The Lake Arbor Station and Adam Sector are based in the northeast area of Arvada. Our mission is to deliver police services with integrity, professionalism, high standards, and innovation tailored to our community.

Sector-based policing in Arvada is designed to enhance community safety and quality of life by enabling the officers to become truly community-based, by becoming experts on the issues, needs, and concerns of the people within their sector. The Adam Sector is staffed by 24 officers including School Resource and Traffic Officers, and five sergeants.

You may reach me by email at mthornton@arvada.org or telephone at 720-898-6721. If you are on social media, I encourage you to follow us on Facebook or Twitter, or connect with your neighbors through Nextdoor.com. We post crime prevention tips and other useful information. Social media is also a great way to connect with your community.

On behalf of the Adam Sector, the staff at the Lake Arbor Community Station and I look forward to being of service you and our community!
