Boulder Police Department Memorial:

There is currently a patrol vehicle parked outside the Boulder Police Department at 1805 33rd St. that is a receiving point for any caring notes and/or support that the public might want to leave for the Talley Family. 

Media-specific Information:

Any instructions provided to the media are provided in accordance with the wishes of the family. This service is to honor their loved one. We will take seriously any violations of the family’s wishes and all members of the violating organization will be required to leave the service. Our hope is that organizations will police themselves and that everything you do will be respectful to the family.

There will be one pool camera at Flatirons Community Church. This camera will be stationary, facing forward, with only minor adjustments for framing and focus. No photos or video of the family will be allowed.

Media vehicle staging (parking) will be at the southwest corner of the Flatirons Community Church parking lot (northwest corner of Waneka Parkway and W. South Boulder Road). Media staging will be on the west side of the church entrance, near the cross walks.

Media cameras (other than the pool camera) will only be allowed to stage inside the media parking area or along public sidewalks. No cameras will be allowed inside the church.
