Crime Statistics

If you have a specific request for statistics from the Boulder Police Department, please send an email to  [email protected] and indicate the following:

  • Date range for the query
  • Street address for the query
  • Specific violation(s) you would like queried
  • Your name, phone number and email address

Please be detailed in describing what information you are looking for, which will help ensure our team gathers the correct data.
