Colorado State University Police Department News

In 2017, CSUPD gave out 3,837 traffic warnings instead of tickets. Written or verbal warnings do not become part of your driving record, and they are an important reminder to pay attention and drive safely.

CSUPD is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying these individuals who may have unknowingly been victims of a string of criminal incidents on campus between April 2017 and January 2018. “These individuals are not under investigation,” said CSUPD Chief Scott Harris. “We want to talk with them to make them aware of the incident they may have experienced, and to gather more information that may help us with our ongoing investigation.” While a suspect has been charged in this investigation, because the investigation is ongoing CSUPD is not releasing additional information about the nature of the crimes or the suspect. If you are one of the individuals identified by these photos, or if you know who one or several of the individuals are, please contact CSUPD at 970-491-6425 and ask to speak with Sgt. Ramsey Crochet.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you

CSUPD is committed to maintaining a safe environment on campus. The university’s peaceful assembly policy and a list of prohibited items during this evening’s Turning Point USA student organization-hosted event and responding peaceful assembly areas is available here. (updated link

Conditions on sidewalks and particularly the plaza are icy this morning. Facilities crews are working to clear the ice, but please be cautious when walking on the plaza and in other areas today. Wear sturdy shoes with good traction.

It's a beautiful day, but winter is back tonight. Plan extra time tomorrow for your drive to campus.

Traffic Tip Tuesday: Did you know that there are bike boxes around campus? These boxes are designed to help cyclists at intersections. Cyclists should move to the front of the green box and wait for the green light. Vehicles should stay behind the green box and wait for the green light. Keep a look out for NO TURN ON RED signs, too.

In 2017 CSUPD officers made 200 DUI arrests on and near campus. Don’t be part of this year’s statistics. If you choose to drink away from home, designate a driver (That does not mean someone who has had the least to drink - it's someone who has not had anything alcoholic to drink), take public transportation, or call Uber, Lyft or a taxi.

Our thoughts are with our brothers and sisters in Adams County, and the family of the deputy who gave his life last night. 💙

We are sad to share this news. Our thoughts are with Mr. Sprackling’s family.

We're sharing this update. Please call law enforcement if you see Mr. Sprackling or his vehicle.

Please help find this missing elderly man.
