Arapahoe County is currently one of the most populated counties in Colorado with an estimated population of 572,003 and a majority of the residents located in Aurora. The county currently spans 805 square miles and encompasses the cities of Centennial, Cherry Hills Village, Foxfield, Columbine Valley, Englewood, Glendale, Byers, Castlewood, Greenwood Village, Deer Trail, and Sheridan.
Arapahoe Counties history dates back to 1855 when it was established as Colorado’s first county, at that point almost half of the entire area that is now Colorado was classified as Arapahoe county of the Kansas territory. Then in 1861 when Kansas became a state Arapahoe county was than named as one of the 17 original counties.
The word Arapahoe means “tattooed on the chest” which was a common practice of the Arapahoe Indians that previously lived on this land.
Arapahoe County Sheriff’s department has had several challenges over the years including dealing with the tragedies of Columbine High School Shooting where 13 people where killed in 1999, the Aurora Theater Shooting of 2012 where 12 people where killed and the most recent Arapahoe School shooting in 2013 where 2 students where killed. This has put additional strain on the sheriff’s department to help enhance all School shooting regulations in order to prevent tragedies like this from happening in the future.
The most notable stride this county has contributed includes introducing the Claire David Public Safety Act to congress in 2017. This act gives victims of school shootings the ability to sue the school if they did not provide “reasonable” care that would protect students and staff from “reasonably foreseeable acts of violence”
