The Fountain Police Department would like to remind our citizens to take pro-active steps to minimize the chance of becoming a victim of a vehicle break in.

Never leave valuable items in your vehicle such as documents that contain personal identifying information, currency/spare change, firearms, laptop computers and cell phones. Never leave items in plain sight that would entice someone to break in to your vehicle. But most importantly, don’t leave it running in the driveway or parking lot, always lock your vehicle and utilize the vehicle’s anti-theft system if so equipped.

If you have any information regarding these incidents or other crimes in our city, you can call the Fountain Police Department at 719-382-8555, or you may leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP (7867).

The Fountain Police Department “Home Safe” program is designed to help assist officers in the event an adult or child with a cognitive impairment goes missing.

Children and adults with cognitive impairment have a tendency to wander or run away from the supervision of their families or caregivers. Many are not completely aware of their surroundings, don’t have a good understanding of safety, and have an increased risk of becoming lost. All of these situations can quickly turn into a life or death situation.

The Fountain Police Department has created a packet consisting of information about the participant, to include: diagnosis or disability, communication method, emergency contacts and any other special considerations officers should be aware of. We want to be able to assist children and adults who are diagnosed with Autism, Down Syndrome, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Severe Developmental Disorders and any others who have an impairment to cognitive functioning return home safe if they are reported missing.

The Home Safe Packets are available at the Fountain Police Department, via the link below, and the School Resource Officers will have them available at every school within the city.

Frank Lewis

Commander Frank Lewis was born in Wurzburg, Germany.  His father was a Master Sergeant in the United States Army and completed two tours in the Vietnam War. When Commander Lewis was seven years old, the entire family re-located to Detroit Michigan.  Following his father’s lead, Commander Lewis joined the National Guard in 1985 and proudly served until the end of his tour. After completing his time in the National Guard, he decided he wanted to continue to serve his community so in 1989 he joined the Detroit Police Department.

He spent his first 11 years working as a patrol officer assigned to the Special Operations Unit and the Narcotics and Vice Unit before promoting to Sergeant. As a Sergeant, he was assigned to work in the Intelligence Unit, Internal Affairs and the Executive Protection Unit.  In 2006, he continued to climb the ranks and was promoted to Lieutenant where he helped lead the Narcotics Enforcement and Forfeiture Unit.  Finally, he was promoted to the distinguished rank of Commander where he was responsible for overseeing various patrol districts within the city. Towards the end of his career as a Commander with DPD, he was in charge of Detroit’s Major and Organized Crime Units. In this role he was responsible not only for his own officers but for many others from various federal and local task forces, Homicide Units, and Vice and Narcotics Units.

After 24 years of dedicated service to the City of Detroit, Commander Lewis retired and relocated to Fountain, Colorado where he brought his talents and expertise to the Fountain Police Department as an Assistant Training Coordinator.  After almost 2 years as a civilian with the Police Department, Commander Lewis wanted to give back to the wonderful city he now calls home so he became a Certified Law Enforcement Officer through the State of Colorado. There was an opening available as a School Resource Officer at Welte Education Center and Commander Lewis gladly stepped into this role. While in this position he not only impacted the staff, but also the students with his unwavering care, compassion and dedication.

Commander Lewis brings over 25 years of experience to the City of Fountain and the Fountain Police Department as the Commander.  He works under the direction of Chief Heberer and is extremely passionate about continuing the mission of making the Fountain Police Department the most respected, caring and efficient Police Department in the region.
