The 911 Operations Center asked us to share the following information with our residents:
Only call 911 for the following reasons:
- To stop an in-progress crime
- To report a fire
- To save a life
You can also text “911” and communicate with a 9-1-1 call-taker. Call if you can, text if you can’t.
For all other public safety needs, dial our non-emergency line: 720-913-2000.
Call the non-emergency number to report non-emergencies such as:
- Any crime to a person that is not in progress
- Burglary to a home that is not in progress
- Auto theft that is not in progress
- Parking complaints
- Loud music complaints
What to expect when you call 911:
- Even if you hear our hold recording, don’t hang up! Hanging up will put you at the back of the queue and cause longer delays.
- Know your location and be prepared to provide it. Even with the use of technology, we don’t always know exactly where you are.
- State your emergency and the number of people involved as best you can.
- Are there any weapons?
- Are there any injuries?
- When did the incident occur?
- Do you have any information about a suspect?
- Follow instructions from the emergency dispatcher.
- First responders are being sent while you give additional information to the operator.
- You may be instructed to administer first aid to those in need.
- Stay on the line until instructed to hang up.
