Investigations

The Investigations Division is made up of four units and is primarily responsible for the investigations of all serious crime (murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft, and motor vehicle theft). In 2015, the Division cleared 41% of all serious crime, over twice the national average of approximately 20%.

In Colorado, survivors of adult sexual assault have three reporting options. Please note that these reporting options do not apply for minors (C.R.S. 19-3-304) and at-risk elders (C.R.S. 18-6.5-108) due to other mandatory reporting obligations. For individuals who do not fall under these two statutes, the three distinct reporting options survivors have at the time of receiving medical care are detailed below:
  • Law Enforcement Report: When a victim chooses to obtain a medical forensic exam and chooses to participate in the criminal justice system at that time.
  • Medical Report: A victim chooses to obtain a medical forensic exam but at that time chooses to not participate in the criminal justice system. Evidence and information to law enforcement is released with victim identifying information. A medical reporting victim can choose to have evidence tested.
  • Anonymous Report: A victim chooses to obtain a medical forensic exam but at that time chooses to not participate in the criminal justice system. Evidence and information to law enforcement is released without victim identifying information. An anonymous reporting victim is consenting to evidence storage only.
To report a sexual assault, please contact the Broomfield Police Communications Center at 303.438.6400.
