Community Safety, Engagement and Trust

It also requires a strong professional working relationship between all members of law enforcement. Dave Walcher is an experienced leader who understands how to get the most out of the men and women of the Sheriff's Office, as well as how to maximize the law enforcement relationships throughout our community to keep us safe and to help achieve justice for those who violate our laws. Husband, neighbor, leader. Dave Walcher has my support for Arapahoe County Sheriff."

- Mayor Ron Rakowsky, Greenwood Village
"The University of Denver and I work with David to implement his vision for bringing Public Safety Leaders together from all over Colorado. David looked into the future and saw a need for collaboration between jurisdictions and departments across a variety of leadership disciplines. As we created the Public Safety Leadership Program, David challenged all of us to build a program that enhanced both the character and the emotional intelligence of public safety officers. We got to see David’s work with The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office as an exemplar of what great leadership looks like. The best part about David’s leadership is the joy, passion and fun he brings to a very serious occupation. As we walk the halls of his office and the streets of Arapahoe County, it is easy to see the loyalty David deserves through inspirational leadership. I say with absolute certainty that David Walcher is a values based leader with a genuine ability to build greater public safety in Arapahoe County."
