Aurora, Colorado-The Aurora Police Department has added a new Open Records Request Coordinator. The coordinator will receive, track and process Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act (CCJRA) requests for the Aurora Police Department.  Anyone, to include members of the public, who wish to receive CCJRA records should complete the CCJRA form which can be located online by clicking HERE or downloading the attached form. Then, click the “CCJRA Open Records Request” button and submit the completed form via email to  APD-ORR@auroragov.org. Please call 303.739.6267 for any additional inquiries related to the request to include status updates on the request.

 

The Open Records Request Coordinator does not receive, process or track Colorado Open Records Act (CORA) requests. CORA requests will continue to be received, tracked, and processed by the Aurora City Clerk’s Office. Anyone, to include members of the public, who wish to submit a CORA request should complete the CORA form which can be located online by clicking HERE or downloading the attached form. Then, click the “General Records Request Form” button and submit the completed form to municipalrecords@auroragov.org.

 

Our media partners should continue to reach out to the Media Relations Unit (MRU) via email at apdpio@auroragov.org and 720.432.5095 for routine requests and breaking news, but recognize the MRU does not receive, track, or process CORA or CCJRA requests.  

 

We will continue to communicate all critical, in-progress incidents initially via Twitter for immediate messaging as an additional benefit to the public and our media partners. You do not need to have a Twitter account to see that newsfeed. You can follow us on Facebook, NextDoor, Instagram, and Snapchat to see information from various Aurora Police Department units.

 

We encourage our community members to engage with their neighborhood Police Area Representative (PAR) Officer. PAR officers assist their communities in combatting, preventing and solving crimes, as well as developing new strategies to resolve problems. You can learn more about your PAR officer by clicking HERE, and using the Neighborhood PAR Officer map found at the bottom of the webpage.
