The Wheat Ridge Police Department is committed to supporting crime prevention programs that enhance the safety of the community. The Police Department sponsors several programs including:
- The lockbox program which provides house key lockboxes to citizens who may require periodic welfare checks or emergency assistance by rescue personnel; and
- The National Night Out celebration sponsored by the City and held at Hayward Park to kick off community-wide block parties to help neighbors become acquainted and unite and to promote crime prevention and drug resistance.
- Other crime prevention programs
These programs rely on support from the community. Donations can be made payable to the Wheat Ridge Foundation and mailed Attention: Police Programs, 4005 Kipling Street, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033. For questions about how you can help, please call Officer Betsy Sailor at 303-235-2910.
