Silverthorne police plan open house Wednesday

SILVERTHORNE – The Silverthorne Police Department will hold its first-ever open house Wednesday in its continuing effort to stay involved with the community.

Administrative assistants Wanda Pearson and Verna Pottle came up with the idea for the open house, which is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. at the department’s town hall offices – at Rainbow Drive and Center Circle – as a way to interact with the community.

“We want the public to feel like they can talk to us about their concerns without pressure or obligation,” Pearson said.

“We want to know how we’re doing.”

Pearson said three or four officers and Chief John Patterson will be available to talk with town residents.

Citizens can obtain brochures and information on crime prevention, fingerprint their children and apply for the police department’s bike giveaway for children.

Refreshments will be served, and door prizes, such as rec center passes and gift certificates to local businesses given away.

Citizens who are not able to attend the open house but who would like to provide input can contact the police department via e-mail ( or by phone (970-262-7320). Information also is available at the town’s Web site,
