Guanella Pass is open for the season! Info from the forest service on the new restrictions: "Signs are being posted to announce new restrictions along the Guanella Pass road corridor on the Clear Creek Ranger District of the Arapaho National Forest, effective March 1, 2018. Concentrated impacts from visitors are causing safety concerns, resource damage and threatening the Town of Georgetown’s water supply. To reduce these impacts, the order restricts use between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., including parking, camping and campfires in undesignated areas within a quarter-mile of Guanella Pass Road, portions of Leavenworth Road and all of Silver Dollar Lake Road. Visitors may still camp and have campfires in one of five developed campgrounds along the road corridor, including 70 developed campsites and 30 designated dispersed sites; park in designated parking areas at any time; hike the Mount Bierstadt Trail at any time; backpack out of the restricted area to camp; and use the area during non-restricted times for parking, picnicking, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting and viewing wildlife."
COMMUNITY SAFETY TIP: Are you signed up to receive CodeRED reverse 911 notifications? This system is not just for evacuation notices in the event of a fire. We may issue an alert for a missing child, or advise residents in a certain area to stay in their homes and lock their doors as we search for a suspect of a crime. If you also sign up for the CodeRED mobile app, you can receive mobile notifications if you are traveling through an area where a reverse 911 is occurring, but which is not near your home. For example, if you are driving back up through Jefferson county on your way home and they issue a notice of a fast moving brush fire in the area you are driving, you would receive that mobile notification from Jeffco through the app. After signing up or updating your profile at the link here, there will be a link for more info on getting the mobile app. https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/F2FD39D5D3DE #CCSOsafetytips
You may have received a flyer like this in the mail recently. We're hoping to get all our residents signed up for CodeRED, our reverse 911 emergency notification system so we are better able to notify you in the event of a wildfire or other event. If you haven't signed up, or just haven't updated your information in a while take the opportunity to do so now at this link: https://public.coderedweb.com/CNE/en-US/F2FD39D5D3DE
"In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice."

It's possible for your home to survive a wildland fire. Check out this video from the NFPA for information on removing ignition sources from around your home.
COMMUNITY SAFETY TIP: Does your car have a remote start feature? If so, activate it before you approach your vehicle. The lights and noise could scare away someone hiding near your vehicle waiting for you to return. Additionally many remote start systems include GPS tracking which can be useful if your car is ever stolen. #CCSOsafetytips
The county commissioners issued a resolution declaring May 6-12, 2018 as National Correctional Officers and Employees Week. We want to thank our jail deputies and staff for their dedication and hard work. You may not see them out and about each day like you do our patrol deputies, but they are nonetheless hard at work 24/7 keeping the county safe. Thank you!!
COMMUNITY SAFETY TIP: Away on vacation? Avoid posting pictures or your location on social media until you return, as doing so tells people that your home is unattended. Did you know we have a Vacation House Check program? Sign up at the link to have a deputy periodically check on your house while you are away: http://www.co.clear-creek.co.us/FormCenter/Sheriffs-Office-8/House-Watches-67 #CCSOsafetytips
COMMUNITY SAFETY TIP: Be aware of areas where criminals are likely to search out victims, such as a parking lot. If you must walk to your vehicle alone, be observant of people who may be loitering in the area. Does their behavior seem odd? If you don’t feel comfortable about a suspicious person or vehicle, please call us to come check it out.

COMMUNITY SAFETY TIP: Avoid rude gestures or otherwise “road raging” other drivers, even if you feel they are driving aggressively.

Disengage from the situation, move away from them in a safe manner, and call 911 to report the issue. #CCSOsafetytips
