Crime Prevention


The Broomfield Police Department strives to provide consistent quality all-hazard education including crime prevention and safety tips to the public and private sectors. 

Crime prevention and community policing share a common purpose - reducing the threat of crime and making our community more safe and secure. The police department needs the assistance from each and every community member. You are the eyes and ears that can make a difference in reducing crime in our community. Remember...public safety is a shared responsibility.

COMMUNITY CRIME MAP - Sometimes referred to as the 'Police Blotter,' the community crime map provides up-to-date information on crime in your area.


LOCK BOX PROGRAM for Seniors - The Lock Box program provides a combination lock box to put a house key inside of and secure to your home. This doesn't have to be to the front door, it can be a side door or back door, but you must note the location on your registration. This is the same type of system that realtors use when selling homes. The combination to the lock is kept on file at the police department, and is easily accessible by dispatch in case of an emergency. If you are ever in a situation where you need the police or medical personnel to come into your home and you are unable to open the door, the police or paramedics will access the combination through dispatch. This will save valuable time and could save your life.

Eligibility requirements: Participants must live alone; have no computer access; be over 65 years old
