Castle Rock Police Department invites you to sit in the driver's seat and explore the many vehicles that serve our community.

CRPD started its annual Touch-A-Truck event in 2016, and it continues to grow every year. We are so grateful to the many organizations around the state who continue to participate in this event. From police cars to firetrucks, helicopters and more, there is something for everyone!

Not only will you will have an opportunity to climb inside and take pictures of the various trucks, their operators will be on hand to answer questions and teach you how they work. Our hope is for your family to leave with a better understanding about how these vehicles all play an important role in keeping our residents safe and secure.
