To provide the best service to our community, the Erie Police Department deploys a Neighborhood Team approach with consistent coverage of all Erie neighborhoods, allowing partnerships with residents and businesses to address crime and other issues.
Officers in Teams are available to:
- Answer questions.
- Work with other Town of Erie agencies to address crimes and other issues that are negatively impacting the neighborhood.
- Assist by providing crime prevention-related public education.
- When available, attend homeowner’s association's meetings and other neighborhood events.
- Track crimes and other problems in their assigned area.
Report a Crime
As always, in the event of a crime, report directly to Boulder County Dispatch at 303-441-4444, or in the event of an emergency dial 9-1-1. Do not contact your Neighborhood Team to address in-progress crimes. Due to training or other scheduling conflicts, it could take several days for an Officer to respond to your inquiry.
Taking part in your Neighborhood Watch Program creates a sense of community. This also creates a close-knit neighborhood which reduces your chance of becoming a victim of crime. If you have any questions or concerns that you wish to have addressed, please reach out directly to your assigned Neighborhood Team Officer.
Good neighbors look out for each other. They keep a close eye on each other's children, vehicles, and homes. Through a strong Neighborhood Watch Program within your community, suspicious activities are reported and crimes are often stopped before they happen.
