Police community stations are open with social distancing and other safety measures in place. Police Service Technicians (PST) at Headquarters (City Hall) are open Mon. - Fri. from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Police Service Technicians at Lake Arbor, West Woods and Whisper Creek Community Stations are available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays only from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Arvada Police Department embraces sector policing, where officers are an integral part of the community they serve. This makes the department more fluid, collaborative, networked and responsive to the community.

Sector Policing Model
Under this model, Arvada police officers are assigned to, and responsible for, specific areas of the City. This type of deployment results in a higher quality of police service because officers are intimately familiar with their assigned sectors and with the citizens who live there.
Another term for sector policing is community policing. Arvada currently has four sectors operating out of three stations: Lake Arbor substation serving Adam Sector, Headquarters at City Hall serving Baker Sector, West Woods substation serving Charlie Sector and Whisper Creek serving Delta Sector -- are a physical representation of our sector policing model and allow for quicker deployment throughout Arvada. The Delta Sector station will be built sometime in the future.
The sector policing model capitalizes on:
- the knowledge, skills and abilities of its police force;
- the collaborative efforts of neighborhood revitalization groups and other organized efforts such as Neighbors Connected, Building Blocks and The Art of Neighboring;
- the development of closer relationships with law-abiding community members, businesses, and members of the faith-based community; and,
- leveraging programs such as Crime-Free Multi-housing, School Resource Officers and the Community Response Impact Team.
