COMMERCE CITY, COLO. - Commerce City Chief of Police Troy Smith announced today the selection of Lowell Richardson to serve as the department's deputy chief for support services.
"I am excited to have a law enforcement professional with a diverse background such as Lowell's join the Commerce City Police Department," said Chief Smith.
Richardson has led all aspects of a police department, as the chief of police for Estes Park, Colo. In this role, he established a community policing philosophy, authorized and implemented more than $500,000 in grant-funded projects, and initiated technology advancements to improve department coordination and response times. Richardson created the Estes Valley Restorative Justice Partnership and was nationally recognized for his community policing approach by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
Since 2008, Richardson also has been the assistant administrator for the 5,400-resident community, which annually expands its population to 3 million by tourist visits. As the town's assistant administrator, he leads seven departments, responsible for 115 full-time employees and an annual operating budget of $34 million.
"I'm looking forward to using my municipal management and law enforcement experiences to benefit the Commerce City Police Department, advancing the organization towards its vision of excellence," said Richardson.
Richardson's 33-year career began as a patrol officer with the Brighton Police Department, where he worked his way through the ranks, serving as a watch commander/sergeant. He became the chief of police for Fruita, Colo. in 1998 before joining Estes Park in 2001. The deputy chief position is part of a new organizational structure consistent with the Commerce City Police Department's new mission, vision and organizational values - created through a collaborative process that engaged every employee of the department. The new structure better aligns the organization for the future and increases accountability. The reorganized department consolidates four divisions into two large divisions, which are overseen by two new deputy chief positions, with six police commander positions instead of the four division commanders and three lieutenants. Through the reclassification of existing positions, the reorganization was accomplished without creating additional full time employees. With the hiring of Richardson and Deputy Chief Frances Gomez, the police department's executive staff is complete and the six commander positions will be appointed in the near future.
Richardson has a master's in organizational management and a bachelor's degree in business management from the University of Phoenix. He is a certified trainer with the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police and the Colorado Police Officer Standards Training Board.Read on...

Lowell is a professional who's had lots of leadership and management training and the town is fortunate to have someone of his caliber in this role."
Richardson came to Estes Park from Fruita, where he served as police chief for 3 years. Prior to Fruita, he spent 19 years with the Brighton Police Department as an officer, detective and sergeant.

Richardson has over 2,000 hours of professional training including specialized training in executive management/leadership and as a professional standards assessor/trainer.
When asked what his thoughts were about the town and its future direction, Richardson said, "I am very optimistic about the future outlook of the town and the entire community. The Town Board has made it a priority to ensure that the anticipated development and redevelopment in Estes Park is done well. Estes Park is changing and I'm excited to be a part of administrative team as we move forward."
Richardson is very active in the community and currently serves at the Sunrise Rotary President. He serves on the Estes Valley Victim Advocates board, Larimer Telephone Authority Board (911), Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police Profession Standards Committee Chair, Colorado Regional Community Policing Board, Estes Valley Restorative Justice Board, and the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention committee.
Halburnt concluded, "Lowell brings a nice set of skills to the demands of this position and I feel comfortable he will apply them to the best interests of the Town of Estes Park."
