GOLDEN POLICE DEPARTMENT LAUNCHES DIGITAL CRIME FIGHTING TOOL

New website offers direct access to crime and public safety-related information

Golden, Colo. ­— May 3, 2021 — The Golden Police Department and Police Chief William Kilpatrick announced the launch of a new website that gives people who use social networks and mobile devices an easier, more effective way to help fight crime and stay informed.

The new Golden Police Department website was developed in partnership with CRIMEWATCH Technologies and is part of the CRIMEWATCH Network (crimewatch.net). This online tool gives the public direct access to crime and public safety-related information happening in their community.

“This new website is the perfect entry point for establishing better police and public partnerships. Technology gives us the opportunity to streamline communications with the public, improve transparency, and strengthen our already great partnerships within the community…several police departments throughout the country are having remarkable success using this technology,” said Chief Kilpatrick.

Golden Police Department is the second Colorado agency to go live on the CRIMEWATCH Network; a communications platform developed specifically for law enforcement agencies that allows for geographically targeted information sharing and intelligence gathering.

Local residents and students are strongly encouraged to visit GoldenPolice.net, sign up for e-mail notifications, connect with the department’s social media sites, and/or download CRIMEWATCH Mobile from the Apple App Store or Android App Store.

The new Golden Police Department Website can be found at GoldenPolice.net.

This resource allows residents to do the following:

  • Sign up for a free account to receive e-mail alerts regarding crime committed in certain areas,
  • Submit a tip to local law enforcement,
  • View recent arrests and “most wanted” lists,
  • Register camera and alarm systems,
  • Share information with others through social media, and
  • Get connected with resources and services.
