Support CPW's K-9 Pilot Program
Meet Cash and Sci, CPW’s first K-9 officers! These four-legged officers are part of a pilot K-9 program, assisting two of our District Wildlife Managers with law enforcement, wildlife management and education. Certified with the National Police Canine Association for handler protection, fugitive apprehension and various wildlife species odor detection, Cash and Sci are working hard to help protect Colorado’s natural resources and all of those who enjoy them. CPW’s K-9 program is still in the pilot stage and relies almost entirely on public donations for funding.

Show Your Pride, Colorado Style
If you’re a Colorado sportsperson, hunting and fishing is more than a hobby or pastime—it’s a way of life. It’s how you connect with nature and, just as important, connect with others who share your passion for Colorado’s wildlife and outdoor heritage.
Now you can unite with other hunters and anglers in a display of pride and support by purchasing a
Wildlife Sporting Plate for your vehicle.
