The Arapahoe County Sherriff’s Office employs more than 700 people and is responsible for all county policing as well as running the county jail, which is where most individuals convicted of a crime in any city or town in the county serve their sentence. Calls for service, and the seriousness of those calls, have also increased – more than 16 percent in just the last five years – creating an increased demand for resources relative to staffing.
