Talking at the CU School of Medicine Block Party
Dispatch center at the CU SOM

If you like community policing, building relationships with the people you serve, and having a healthy work-life balance, then we have the job for you. Join the Police Department at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, the largest academic health center in the Rocky Mountain region. You’ll have an important job protecting those who protect others through ground-breaking, life-saving research that’s at the forefront of transformative education, science, medicine, and healthcare. 

We have very competitive benefits, too. A discounted RTD EcoPass, a generous PERA retirement plan, and Public Service Student Loan Forgiveness are just the start. You can also take classes at any of our four CU campuses tuition-free, while your dependents can attend at a free or discounted rate. 

For officer and dispatcher positions, we offer up to a $5,000 hiring bonus (half paid upon start and half paid at completion of the in-house training program).
