Weld Sheriff’s Office to maintain operations amid public health order

Posted on 03/16/2020

The Weld County Sheriff’s Office will maintain certain operations while a public health order issued in response to the Coronavirus outbreak is in effect.

On Monday, Weld County government declared a pandemic health emergency and issued a public health order mandating social distancing through April 8 to reduce public interaction and slow the spread of Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19.

Social distancing means people stay at least six feet away from each other, and all events of 10 people or more are canceled. All events at the following locations are prohibited, regardless of the number of attendees: day care centers, child care centers, private schools (including pre-schools), private day schools, community recreation centers, ice rinks and libraries.

The sheriff’s office is maintaining public safety operations, but certain services will be impacted while the public health order is in effect.

The Del Camino substation, 4209 Weld County Road 24 1/2 in Longmont, and the Fort Lupton substation, 2950 9th St., is closed to the public until April 8. The sheriff’s office main lobby, located in the administration building at 1950 O St. in Greeley, will remain open during normal operating hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) for civil services, fine payment, sex offender registration and to process conceal carry permits.

Conceal carry permit holders who need to renew before April 8 but don’t want to travel while the public health order is in effect will be granted a 30-day extension.

Although the administration office will remain open, the public is asked to do as much business as possible by phone and email.

The Weld County Jail, 2110 O St. in Greeley, is closed to all but professional visitors, such as attorneys. However, professional visitors also are encouraged to conduct as much business as possible electronically and by phone.

In addition to dialing 911 or calling non-emergency dispatch, the public is encouraged to also take advantage of Greeley and Weld County’s online portal to report non-emergency crimes such as thefts, lost property, vandalism and gas drive-offs.
