The Mt. Crested Butte Police Department's goal is to create and sustain a safe and relaxed environment within our jurisdiction. Through education, enforcement, investigation, and cooperation with our community Mt. CB PD helps address crime, road safety, and other quality of life issues ensuring a safe and friendly experience for guests and locals alike.

The Mt. Crested Butte Police Department is located in Town Hall and is administered by the Chief of Police, Nate Stepanek.

The department's primary jurisdiction is within the town limits of Mt. Crested Butte. However, a mutual aid agreement between the town and Gunnison County Sheriff's Office gives officers jurisdiction over all areas of Gunnison County. This includes Crested Butte South and Red Mountain Ranch but excludes the Town of Crested Butte.
