Employer: Town of Windsor


The charming Town of Windsor, established in 1881, holds the distinction of being a Colorado home-rule municipality. Nestled midway between two state capitals — Denver, Colorado, and Cheyenne, Wyoming — Windsor’s origins trace back to its agricultural and railroad roots along the historic stagecoach route connecting Greeley and Fort Collins. Over the past three decades, Windsor has expanded fivefold, blossoming into one of Colorado’s most sought-after communities. Windsor offers a safe, close-knit community with excellent schools, quality healthcare, and diverse housing options. Its unique downtown, shops, and businesses provide convenient services. The town’s 44,632 residents relish the benefits of small-town living while having convenient access to nearby amenities.


The Windsor Police Department is comprised of six main divisions: Community Engagement, Investigations, Patrol, Property & Evidence, Records, and Special Operations. The Chief of Police performs a variety of advanced professional and administrative oversight duties in support of the overall management of the Windsor Police Department. This position is responsible for the proper and efficient enforcement of all laws, ordinances, and regulations; the maintenance and enforcement of effective discipline; and the supervision of police functions and department operations. The Chief of Police represents the department and the town in all matters related to law enforcement and reports directly to the Town Manager.
