Community Programs

  1. 911 for Kids

    911 for Kids

    This is an important program that gives children the tools needed when calling 911. Our goal is to teach all young children in the Castle Rock area about the importance of 911 and how to use it if they are in an emergency.

  2. Art Around the Rock

    Art Around the Rock

    By creating something that positively impacts human behavior, such as painting murals on bridges, crime can be deterred. The idea is part law enforcement science and part creativity. Officially called Crime Prevention through Environmental Design, the theory is that police officers, planners, architects and the community can work together to prevent crime at the start of a project.

  3. Citizens' Police Academy

    Citizens' Police Academy

    Every year, we provide the residents of Castle Rock a chance to gain a better understanding of what law enforcement officers go through on a daily basis through the Citizens' Police Academy. Participants engage in a combination of classroom and hands-on training.

  4. CodeRED Emergency Mass Notification

    CodeRED Emergency Mass Notification

    CodeRed is a high-speed telephone emergency notification system that allows public safety personnel to send messages directly to residents – whether they are home or away – during an emergency. It uses geo-tracking to target specific areas with prerecorded phone messages, emails or texts.

  5. Coffee with a Cop

    Coffee with a Cop

    Launched in 2014, these informal conversations with Castle Rock Police Officers at local coffee shops, restaurants and other venues give residents and business owners a chance to connect with police in a relaxed atmosphere. Castle Rock Police hosts one event each month.

  6. Community policing

  9. Crime Stoppers

    Crime Stoppers

    As part of the Crime Stoppers program, witnesses and others with information can receive a monetary award, if their tips lead to an arrest and charges filed against a suspect, while remaining anonymous. Awards range from $50 - $2,000, but higher awards have been made to tipsters providing assistance in more serious crime categories.

  10. ReportIt-Protecting Personal Property

    ReportIt-Protecting Personal Property

    Castle Rock Police Department and LeadsOnline have partnered to provide the public a new way to protect their personal property. ReportIt allows you to securely store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures, and receipts so that your items may be more easily identified in the event of theft or loss.

  11. School Programs

    Starting with the 2013-14 school year, police officers now have a stronger presence at area schools through the new School Marshal Program.

    Specific Response Registry

    The Castle Rock Police Department has created a voluntary Specific Response Registry to identify Castle Rock residents who may need extra assistance in the event of an emergency or evacuation. This registry also will allow police officers to access disability-specific information more easily during contact with registrants.
