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

The department fills a vital role within the community. This is in part due to the remote location, high altitude and extreme climate of Mt. Crested Butte. Town police staff are frequently faced with critical situations which are unique to a small segment of the world's police force.

The department's primary jurisdiction is within the town limits of Mt. Crested Butte. However, due to a Mutual Aid Agreement between the town and the Gunnison County Sheriff's Office, gives officers jurisdiction over all areas of Gunnison County which lie north of mile marker 19 on Highway 135 and continuing to the northern and eastern borders of Gunnison County, and west on Kebler Pass to Lost Lake. This includes Crested Butte South and Red Mountain Ranch, but excludes the Town of Crested Butte.
