 Robert VanderVeen, Adam Sector   Commander

Robert was born in Illinois and attended college at Eastern Illinois University. My Bachelor's degree is in Sociology. I worked with handicapped individuals for several years before settling in Law Enforcement.

In 1987 I was hired by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and attended their academy. Upon graduation, I was assigned to Patrol and stayed there for one year before transferring to the Northglenn Police Department. I served the city of Northglenn from 1988-1993 and was primarily assigned to the DUI Unit. I also worked as a part-time DARE Officer.

In March 1993 I was hired by the Arvada Police Department. I have worked many assignments to include: DUI Officer; Drug Recognition Expert (DRE); SFST and PPCT Instructor; DARE; Bicycle Officer; Investigations assigned to Person(s), Crimes Against Children and Polygraph. I was promoted to Sergeant in 2010 and was assigned to Patrol, Investigations, Internal Affairs, and CRIT. In 2018 I was promoted to Commander assigned to Adam Sector. I completed the Northwestern 10-week leadership course in 2018. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time with comments or concerns.
