Officer Liaison Program

In the Spring of 2015, the Department will be re-instituting its Liaison Program. This program pairs Campus Safety Officers and personnel with various groups across campus. These groups can range from Departments or Units, student clubs, staff/faculty groups, or community organizations. The purpose of the Liaison program is to provide a forum for a deeper level of engagement between Campus Safety personnel and campus groups; allowing for both parties to be involved in each other’s events & campaigns.

Complaints can be filed in two ways:

  1. Informal complaints can be filed by calling the Commander of Patrol Services at 303.871.2139.  Informal complaints are generally minor in nature. The Commander of Patrol Services may determine, based on the information you've provided, that the complaint you've submitted is of a nature that requires a formal complaint. In that situation, the Commander will initiate an investigation on your behalf.
  2. Formal complaints can be filed by filling out the online complaint form. Formal complaints are generally used for serious misconduct on the part of a Campus Safety Employee. As part of our initiatives, community members are encouraged to report any complaints or concerns using the new online form available at
