Located midway between Colorado’s two largest cities (Denver and Colorado Springs), Douglas County is home to multiple cities:
Tony Spurlock is the current Douglas County Sheriff, maintaining a Detention Facility in Castle Rock, Colorado. This jail is home to inmates who are serving their time of confinement (as part of their sentence), and inmates who are awaiting the outcome of their criminal case. Additionally, the jail staff is responsible for a number of other duties related to the court, including transportation of inmates for court appearances (in the county and out of the county), and answering out-of-county warrants.
Every four years, the elected position of Douglas County Sheriff is up for vote (according to term limits). As well as caring for the Detention Facility, the Sheriff’s Department also has other responsibilities, including crime investigation in incorporated areas of the county, service of process, court security, and patrol. Another area of responsibility is the “task force” role that allows personnel to coordinate with other agencies in other jurisdictions to cross political and jurisdictional borders as they interact.
Douglas County is one of the original seventeen counties created when Colorado became a territory on November 1, 1861. Originally the county border ran all the way east to Kansas, but in 1874 most of the eastern portion of the county became Elbert County. The county seat was originally Franktown, but was moved to Castle Rock when Elbert County was formed in 1874. Douglas County is sometimes referred to as the birthplace of Colorado owing to the initial discovery of gold that would lead to the Pike’s Peak Gold rush was at the Russelville settlement in Douglas County. Russellville, located southeast of present day Franktown, was one of the earliest settlements in Colorado and developed into a boomtown for a while during the gold rush and continued to be an important source of lumber because of its location in the Black Forest. Today Douglas County is the seventh most populous county in Colorado and can boast the highest median income of all counties in Colorado.
