All Police “Agents” must have a four-year college degree before applying with the department. Lakewood’s focal points are the Civic Center, the massive Colorado Mills Mall and the urban shopping and living center at Belmar.

The United States Census Bureau estimates that in April 1, 2010 census the population of the City was 142,980.Lakewood is west of Denver and is part of the Denver-Aurora-Broomfield, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Before incorporation in 1969, policing was provided by the Jefferson County Sheriff, a volunteer fire service, and with few street lights and sidewalks. The City of Lakewood was incorporated in 1969. At the time of incorporation the city population was already over 90,000.
The urban/suburban development of the community known as Lakewood was begun in 1889 by Charles Welch and W.A.H. Loveland, who platted a 13-block area along Colfax Avenue west of Denver in eastern Jefferson County. Loveland, the former president of the Colorado Central Railroad, retired to the new community of Lakewood after many years of living in Golden.
