Security and Parking Operations’ mission is to vigorously protect El Paso County assets (facilities, people, information, and physical assets) and provide professional parking services.

To accomplish our mission and to provide the most efficient and effective services possible, the section is divided into three major units:

Security officers protect people (elected officials, employees, and visitors to County buildings) and County assets (building infrastructure, equipment, vehicles, information, and other property).  Officers also provide escorts, handle access control screening, conduct mail inspections, and perform a variety of patrol assignments.


Security analysts conduct risk assessments, evaluate physical protection systems, inspect security and fire systems, conduct investigations, manage the emergency response and evacuation plan, manage the mechanical lock and electronic access control systems, and provide security training.


Parking Operations staff manage the operation of the County owned parking lots and garages, which includes overseeing the efficient use of parking spaces, the collection and accounting of parking revenue, and the reasonable enforcement of parking regulations.


 We are committed to:

  • Providing personable and responsive service to our customers.
  • Developing and maintaining a high performance operation.
  • Developing highly proficient security and parking operations’ employees, and treating each with respect, dignity, and fairness.
  • Engaging in behavior that is beyond ethical reproach and reflects the integrity of security and parking operations’ professionals.
  • Being proactive, visionary, and anticipatory.
  • Examining the feasibility of using new and emerging technology that will help us do our job more efficiently and effectively.
