Durango Police Department limiting some non-emergency services

San Juan Basin Public Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment are both reporting increasing COVID-19 infections locally and statewide. As a result, civilian employees with the Durango Police Department will work remotely to lessen the number of people in offices working in close proximity to one another. This will limit availability of some services: 

  • Patrol officers will still respond to all calls for service, but calls may be handled via phone instead of in-person depending on the incident. We encourage citizens to report non-emergency incidents online when possible.  
  • Records/lobby: Lobby hours are reduced to 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The business phone will still be answered 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Property release will be by appointment only. Please call (970) 375-4748 to make an appointment
  • Other administrative services: If no one answers the phone during business hours please leave a message. You will receive a call back as soon as possible.

We hope this will be a temporary situation and will be working hard to ensure we continue to provide administrative services in a timely manner.
