Our community has a healthy balance of residential, retail, business and light manufacturing. There are five medium sized hotels with approximately 500 rooms. Most of the residential housing is single family housing with a relatively low number of apartments. The Louisville City Council 's number one goal is to maintain Louisville as a safe city. Louisville has one of the lowest crime rates in Colorado for Cities with more than 10,000 residents.
Patrol and Investigations
Uniformed patrol officers respond to calls for service and request for citizen assistance. Approximately one-half of a patrol officer's time is spent working on non-criminal cases, e.g. lost children, medical emergencies, traffic accidents, etc. Patrol officers are also responsible for the enforcement of traffic law, some code enforcement, and crime prevention presentations.
Detectives conduct follow-up investigations of deaths, assaults, child abuse, sexual assaults, robberies, burglaries, serious thefts, frauds, credit card and check crimes, arson, fugitives, serious vandalism, and drug offenses.
Louisville has one K-8 parochial school three elementary schools, one middle school, one K-8, and one high school. Three patrol officers are assigned full-time to work with the City's youth and schools. In addition, other patrol officers work part-time with youth. Our philosophy is that we work closely with the schools as police officers, not as counselors or security guards. We do a number of different public safety and instructional programs.
This division enforces the municipal code. It includes dealing with parking, junked vehicles, uncontrolled weeds, and stray dogs. Code officers work with residents and the business community to achieve compliance with City ordinances. Because voluntary compliance is always preferable to punitive enforcement, the department implemented its Courtesy Notice program in 1994. The results are impressive: more code violations than ever are being detected and cited, while the proportion of voluntary compliance is higher.
Fingerprinting services are available by appointment only on Tuesdays from 8 AM - 3 PM. Cost is $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents. You must provide your own fingerprint card. The fee is double if you need four or more cards completed. For more infromation or to make an appointment, please call 303.666.6531.
