The Records Section is responsible for filing all records in an efficient and accepted method that allows for accountability, accuracy, security, and ease of access. The Records Supervisor will ensure state and federal laws are followed concerning the retention and release of records. Records retention is governed by the Colorado State Municipal Records Retention Schedule, which can be viewed here: Municipal Records Retention Manual.

Effective Oct. 1, 2018, the Erie Police Department no longer provides fingerprint services to in-state fingerprint requests. This change is in response to Senate Bill 17-189. The Erie Police Department will still conduct fingerprint services to those who need prints for out of state employment or who need printed cards to be sent to the FBI. The fee for this service is $10 per card. Fingerprinting is offered during normal business hours, no appointment necessary.

Sex Offender Records
The Erie Police Department does not post information concerning sex offenders only convicted of misdemeanor sex offense(s) or juveniles adjudicated for sex crimes.
You should not rely solely on the sex offender registry as a safeguard against perpetrators of sexual assault in our community.
Vigilantism, or use of this information to harass, threaten, or intimidate the offender, the offender’s family or the community is criminal behavior.
