Party Registration Program

In August of 2019, the City of Boulder Police Department launched a Party Registration Program. The program allows residents, through an online form, to notify the police department of a planned party. The goal of this program is to promote being a good neighbor, while providing the police department an opportunity to partner with community members to better address their concerns.
 

Party Registration Program

• Community members who live in the City of Boulder can register their party on our mobile app or using the below link.
• If during your registered party, the Boulder Police Department receives a complaint in reference to the noise or other issue, the listed contact(s) for the party may receive a telephone call from police dispatch. The dispatcher will inform the resident that there has been a complaint in reference to their party and they have 20-minutes to end the party.
• Failure to end the party within the 20-minute window, or subsequent complaints, may result in an officer being dispatched to the residence, which could result in a summons being issued.
• Registering a party is not a permit and does not authorize you or your residence to violate any City of Boulder or State of Colorado laws or regulations. In addition, just because a party is registered, does not mean officers are prohibited from making contact and/or requesting the party be shut down at any point.
 

Benefits

• Community members who register their party are provided an added courtesy from the police department and an opportunity to voluntarily comply with the request to end their party, following a complaint, prior to any law enforcement contact. Thus decreasing the probability of law enforcement contact and the potential issuance of a summons.
• Allows Boulder Police staff to be available for other calls for service and address other community concerns.
• Provides Boulder Police staff a resource to more quickly address community concerns in reference to a nuisance party. By allowing a dispatcher to contact the residents by telephone, community members will potentially have their complaint resolved without having to wait the added time for a uniformed officer to be available.
