Support During Remote Learning

  • You can always reach the Department of Safety at (720) 423-3911.

Fire Drills / Lock Down Drills

  • Lockdown drills will be conducted this year while adhering to social distance guidelines. The Emergency Management Specialists will schedule a time for your drill and provide a link to a short video on how to conduct a lockdown. The intent is for teachers to play this video in their classroom. At the conclusion of the video the EM team will play the lockdown announcement for everyone to hear. We will be present to address any questions that may arise. 

    The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control has released fire drill requirements for the 20-21 school year. The requirements will not change. All schools will be required to conduct a fire drill within the first 10-days of the beginning of in person learning. Fire drills will be required monthly after that. Please contact your Emergency Management Specialist should you need assistance conducting your drill. 

School Supports

  • Campus Safety will be updating the Standards of Service agreement and reviewing with each school leader within the first 30 days of the school year.  We are still finalizing plans for hallway monitoring and access control as required by the CDPHE, but do know that flexibility will be important as we support schools opening.  Please prioritize communication with the Department of Safety Team and ask questions of your assigned liaison officer when needed.  Department of Safety Officers will be using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), as required.

    Our patrol teams will continue to work 24/7 supporting our school communities.  However, we will continue to triage calls for service in our dispatch center and will ask schools to only utilize Safety Officers for situations that present a danger to others.  Disruptive students and classroom management issues will be referred back to the school and/or the Office of Social Emotional Learning to handle.  We want to ensure that uniformed Safety Officers are utilized in a manner that supports equity, safety and the emotional well being of our students.  

Updates to SRO Program

  • Denver Police School Resource Officers will be returning in the fall. These dedicated officers are committed to supporting the school communities they are currently assigned to.  We will be creating a committee of stakeholders to identify what school policing looks like moving forward as we begin to phase out the SRO program as required by the Board Resolution. We will keep you updated on this process.
