Colorado Springs Airport Police
Mission Statement

Our mission is to carry out federal mandated law enforcement services at the municipal airport, along with providing police services and ensuring a safe environment for the traveling public and the employees at the airport.
About the Unit

The CSPD Airport Unit is staffed 24hrs a day, 7 days a week by sworn Colorado Springs Police Officers. All officers have served as patrol officers before being accepted for assignment to the Airport Unit and many officers have previous experience in specialized units such as S.W.A.T.,The Federal Air Marshal Service, Bomb Squad ,Investigations , Traffic, K-9 and the Fugitive Unit to name a few. Airport Unit Officers perform traditional patrol duties, such as traffic control and enforcement, taking accident and crime reports, making arrests for crimes and warrants, and patrol of the airport properties. Airport Unit Officers respond to calls inside the terminal building, on the airfield, and to business and traffic concerns around the perimeter of the airport. They also assist in prisoner transfers, VIP escorts and Dignitary protection.

The primary requirement of the CSPD Airport Unit, by Federal mandate, is the rapid response to the Security Checkpoint in the event of a security breach or prohibited items being brought through. Officers routinely respond to the checkpoint and baggage screening for found weapons, drugs, and other hazardous items. The normal Tour of Duty with the Airport Unit is six years. The Unit is also home to three TSA Explosives Detection K-9 Officers, Two Parking Enforcement Officers and a Police Service Representative(PSR).

The CSPD Airport Unit office is located on the lower level of the terminal building at the Colorado Springs Airport.
