CU Boulder and City of Boulder Police Departments
The CU Boulder Police Department’s jurisdiction includes all university property, while the city of Boulder Police Department covers all other areas in the city. The two entities work together where case specifics warrant coordination. Officers from both departments receive commissions from the city of Boulder Department of Public Safety, and CU Boulder police retain authority within the city as well as on-campus. The University of Colorado Boulder is fortunate to have a full-service police department working to keep the campus community safe and two well-qualified forces committed to a collaborative relationship for the public good.
