Message from Colonel Scott Hernandez, Chief

Dear Colorado State Patrol visitor,

Thank you very much for your interest in the Colorado State Patrol! Our website has been designed to better serve the needs of our citizens, guests of Colorado, and our internal and external partners in their quest for answers. Within this site is our Strategic Plan, mission and vision statements, agency history, organizational structure, employment information, highway safety programs, educational services such as Child Passenger Safety and Alive at 25, filing a compliment, filing a complaint, filing an accident report, setting a Vehicle Identification Number (V.I.N.) verification appointment, or simply finding the nearest troop office.

I welcome and encourage your comments about the Colorado State Patrol, and thank you for your continued support for the past 78 years.


Colonel Scott G. Hernandez

Chief, Colorado State Patrol


Our Family Protecting Yours Since 1935
