Over Policing in Boulder

I’d like to know average officer staffing per capita. That is # of policemen per citizens in the “downtown ” and “metropolitan” areas of Boulder Colorado by the BPD.

Thank you for your help obtaining these figures.

**Editor’s Note: Upon using Boulder County’s Open Records Portal, we have discovered that the Boulder Police Department only accepts records requests via mail. At this time, we are going to mark this request as complete and leave it up to the original requester of this information to submit mail to Boulder PD to fulfill their request.

    Dear Sunshine,

     

    Boulder County has received your open records request dated 6/13/2018. You requested the following:

     

    “Hello City of Boulder,

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    We recently received a request for information that may be available in your office. If a cost will be associated with this request, can you please let us know an estimate? Also, if this request should be sent to a different party please inform us and we will direct this request there.
