Community Service Officer
Every summer season Estes Park sees a dramatic increase in vehicle and pedestrian traffic. To assist Patrol and ensure pedestrian safety and traffic flow, Estes Park Police Department employs seasonal Community Service Officers (CSOs). CSOs perform a variety of duties, including parking enforcement; traffic flow; traffic safety; animal control; lost and found property; special events and parades. CSOs primarily patrol on foot in the downtown corridor where the highest pedestrian and vehicle traffic occur. CSOs are deployed throughout Estes Park during special events and large incidents. Learn what Estes Park Police Department Chief Kufeld, a former CSO, has to say about the history of CSOs and their role in the Estes Park Community.
