Community Policing - Interactive Partnerships Worth Building

The Ouray Safe Neighborhood Group and Traffic Safety Program are community policing programs that are dedicated to maintaining safe neighborhoods and streets within the City of Ouray. As a police department, we recognize the need for these and the vital roles they play in the overall safety of our community. Ouray Safe Neighborhoods and the Traffic Safety Program meet jointly, the fourth Wednesday of every month (subject to change due to scheduling); the meeting place is determined each month as well. Each meeting is dedicated to training, identifying problems in our neighborhoods, traffic safety concerns, ways to decrease speeding, as well as discussing upcoming community events such as family movie nights in the park.

If you'd like to join any of the community policing groups, please feel free to attend any of their upcoming meetings - it's as simple as that. Or, if you'd like to make a financial donation to the department, so that they may continue with their events, you can send a check made payable to the City of Ouray to the following address (**Be sure to note on your check that it is for 'Community Policing'):

City of Ouray - Police Department
P.O. Box 468
Ouray, CO 81427
 

Next month's Safe Neighborhood and Traffic Safety meeting will be on Wednesday, April 26 at the Community Center.
 

Thank you for your continued support!
