Traffic Safety Tip: Mandatory Stop & School Buses
Posted on 11/20/2019 at 03:55 pm

School buses carry our communities most precious cargo. Please drive, ride etc. safely around buses but especially when they are stopped. In Colorado, all motor vehicles, including bikes, must stop when a school bus has its red lights on and stop sign extended. Buses will flash yellow hazard lights in preparation for stopping to allow kiddos to get on and off the bus. The lights will flash red and a stop sign extends while children are in motion. Please be patient around buses Boulder. Our kid's safety is worth it.

Baxter's Bear Safety Tips
Posted on 11/18/2019 at 06:06 pm

Baxter, friend of bears everywhere reminds you to please do your part to keep bears wild. Please don't feed the bears you may see around town. If you encounter a bear, do not approach the bear, try to look big and back away. If you have a bear in your yard, from a safe location i.e. from inside your home, try to scare the bear away by banging on pots and pans, use an air horn or clap.

Homeless Camps
Posted on 11/15/2019 at 04:00 pm

We have received a lot of calls about homeless camps across the city but particularly near 30th Street and Goose Creek. The police department continues to enforce the city’s camping ordinance, including the area near 30th Street and Goose Creek. In the past 30 days our officers have issued over 100 tickets for camping at locations throughout the city, including the Goose Creek area. This is not an easy problem to solve and enforcement alone will not solve the homelessness problem faced by our community and throughout the nation.

Congrats to Sergeant Ben & Sergeant Darren! These two new sergeants were recently promoted from the rank of officer to sergeant. The road to supervision is a lot of hard work and these two have excelled during their time as officers. They bring a tremendous amount of experience to their new role. We are excited to have these two outstanding individuals in formal roles of leadership at the Boulder Police Department.
