9pm Routine

The 9PM Routine aims to raise awareness about how community members can help to protect their home and property from theft and burglaries.

Every night at 9:00 p.m., the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office encourages the community to lock up your car and home, turn on lights and bring in valuables to reduce the likelihood of falling victim to property crimes. 


  • REMOVE: valuables from your car, including keys, wallet, and any guns
  • LOCK UP: your car, house, windows, garage, gates, shed
  • LEAVE ON: exterior lights, security cameras, alarm systems

Remember cars are not gun safes.  Safely store your gun in a secure location at home. Thieves are known to target cars to steal guns. Don’t make it easy.

Join us each night to help create safer neighborhoods in Mesa County.
