If someone you know is experiencing a crisis...
If your student has told you that they are in a crisis, you can request a welfare check. Welfare checks can be instituted by any police department if you are concerned about the health, safety or welfare of someone. Be prepared to give the person of concern's exact address (residence hall and room number if on campus) as well as the reason for concern.
- On-campus welfare checks: call CUPD at 303-492-6666
- Off-campus welfare checks: call Boulder Police at 303-441-3333
