The Office of Public Safety in Arapahoe County, Colorado is dedicated to providing quality communication, patrolling, and investigation services to the 197,045 residents of the county. To ensure the safety of its citizens, Arapahoe, Jefferson, and Douglas counties have implemented a state-of-the-art emergency notification system. This system allows the county to quickly disseminate essential information in a variety of situations, such as fires, floods, evacuations of buildings or neighborhoods, and other emergencies. The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office is responsible for managing the emergency notification system.
To comply with and enforce the new law on extreme risk protection orders, the Sheriff's Office created a policy for the program. Participation in the program is voluntary and is subject to conditions such as periodic renewal or other verification methodologies that may be adopted by the Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff's Office does not assume any legal liability for interrupted calls, diverted calls, or other incidents that may result in notification errors. Residents and businesses with landlines are already listed in the Arapahoe County 9-1-1 database and are therefore automatically included in the notification system. However, those who wish to receive notifications via cell phone or email must sign up for the voluntary subscription program.
The Sheriff's Office is not responsible for any incorrect information provided by participants in the voluntary subscription program or for any charges or fees that telephone or data service providers may charge participants as a result of their participation. The Office of Public Safety in Arapahoe County is committed to providing quality services to its citizens. The emergency notification system is an important tool for ensuring public safety and providing timely information to residents in times of crisis. By participating in the voluntary subscription program, residents can stay informed and be better prepared for any emergency situation.
