Report a Financial Crime
Financial Crimes Reporting
Financial Crimes Information
Welcome to the Boulder Police Department's Financial Crimes information site. This Web page is designed to assist and educate you in dealing with the complexity of financial frauds and identity theft crimes.
If you feel that you are the victim of one of the crimes listed below, you need to first report the crime to police and then help us in the investigative process by completing one of the information packets available in the following links.
To report the crime, please call the Boulder Police Department's non-emergency dispatch line at 303-441-3333. Dispatchers will take your information and either send an officer out to speak with you or refer you to the Community Police Center at 15th and Pearl streets to provide initial information and obtain a case number.
Once you have a case number, we will ask you to complete the following packet that most fits your particular situation.
This packet is used when the case involves a forgery. The most common forgery would involve checks, but this could also include other documents as well. (A person commits forgery, if with intent to defraud, such person falsely makes, completes, alters, or utters a written document.)
Identity Theft Packet
Use this packet when the crime involves the stealing of someone's identity, such as when a victim finds out that someone has stolen his or her social security number and is using it for employment. Other examples may be when an account is opened using the victim's personal identifying information or when a suspect uses a victim’s credit card.
Use this packet when an employee is accused of stealing funds from their employer. This tends to be more complicated documentation, so in addition to the packet, we are including a Sample Embezzlement Packet which shows a correct and completed packet.
It is our hope that providing these forms online for victims to download and complete will help streamline the process and improve our service in investigating these crimes.
In addition to working with our department, we strongly urge victims of identity theft and financial fraud to take additional protection steps, including contacting creditors and others about your situation
