Nestled just south of Colorado's capital city, Castle Rock is a thriving world-class community. With more than 80,000 residents, Castle Rock values its small-Town character, its traditional Downtown core and its regular community events. Castle Rock is a full-service municipality. It employs about 600 full-time employees to provide police, fire, emergency medical, parks, recreation, roads and water services. The Town also serves as the Douglas County seat and is home to headquarters for the Douglas County School District, Douglas County, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and a local Colorado State Patrol troop.
