About the Community Protection Division

The Community Protection Division (CPD) serves the people of Boulder County in three ways:

  • Works to resolve disputes between individual consumers and businesses.
  • Investigates complaints and prosecutes cases involving abuse or exploitation of at-risk members of our community.
  • Engages community members through outreach and education, increasing their awareness to prevent becoming victims of crime.

CPD Staff members and volunteers can answer questions, provide information and referrals, and work to resolve consumer complaints. Our office is located in the Boulder County Justice Center at 6th and Canyon. To connect our office, please call 303-441-3700 and ask for the Community Protection Division.
