Chief of Police


 Interim Chief Mike Clement Michael E. Clement was appointed Interim Chief of Police for the City and County of Broomfield in July 2014 upon the retirement of Thomas C. Deland. In 2001, after a state-wide election, Broomfield created its own city and county form of government. As a result, the Chief of Police became the ex-officio sheriff of the county and assumed the additional duties of managing the county detention center, emergency management, and other county-related responsibilities.

Interim Chief Clement began his law enforcement career in 1985 as a patrol officer in Broomfield. He was promoted to sergeant in 1992, commander in 1998, and deputy chief in 2009.  Interim Chief Clement has served in various operational assignments throughout the Department.
