Captain of Patrol Jim Jensen

With three decades of public service, Captain Jensen has a broad background in law enforcement. He proudly served his country as a military policeman in the Marine Corps before beginning his civilian law enforcement career in 1984. He joined the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in 1997.

He has held roles of progressive responsibility in two large Colorado sheriff’s offices, having worked in every division within them. Prior to his promotion to captain, he was the deputy director of the Rocky Mountain Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory, a multiagency law enforcement task force.

Captain Jensen is proud to have served on two different metro-area SWAT teams during his law enforcement tenure. He loves motorcycling and spent several years in Douglas County’s Traffic Unit as a motor officer. He is a recognized subject matter expert in both teen driver safety and elderly driver topics in law enforcement, and frequently teaches teens, and their parents, about the learn-to-drive process.

Captain Jensen is a graduate of the 174th session of the FBI National Academy and received the Trilogy Award for leadership from the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association. He lives in Douglas County and his four adult children live nearby.
