Community Liaison Office of Urban Development

The Glendale Police Department would like to introduce you to the CLOUD!

What is the CLOUD all about? The CLOUD is about Community Out-Reach, we work with businesses, apartment managers, residents, visitors and more. If you need information or assistance with a non-emergent issue, this is a great place to start.

The CLOUD works with businesses to drive down any crime they might be experiencing, like shoplifting or graffiti. When working with retailers in the area, we are able to spot trends and identify problem individuals. We do Emergency Preparedness training (Run, Hide, Fight, Treat) with local businesses so they know what to do during an emergency and can address situations right away. We work with apartment managers to help them better identify and handle problem tenants. We do CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) reviews to help in identifying problem areas and address areas that work well by providing natural surveillance of the vicinity. Our interaction with residents and visitors in Glendale is widespread. We are involved in various events: Movie Night at Infinity Park, the Kids Work Shops at Home Depot, Bike to Work Day, Drug Take Back Day, National Night Out and working with the kids at the Sports Center, just to name a few. If you have an event and want to have Officers and/or McGruff stop by, let us know. Want to learn about what to put into an emergency "go" bag? We would be happy to give suggestions. Need to learn Self Defense? We have that covered too.

Please feel free to contact the CLOUD office (Monday through Friday 8 to 4) with any non-emergency issues at 303-759-1511or just to give us feedback on how we are doing.

You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Nextdoor to see what upcoming events we will be attending!

Intern learns to shoot

Volunteers-Victim advocate volunteers are also utilized at the Glendale Police Department. Volunteers are trained in a classroom setting, consisting of approximately 50 classroom hours of crisis intervention. Volunteers then take "call-outs" on weekends and various evening or overnight hours whenever there is a victim of violent crime. These trained advocates accompany police officers to interviews, hospitals, or crime scenes to support victims and ensure they are treated with dignity and respect.

For more Victim Advocate Volunteer information see the Victim Services Page.

Background checks and polygraphs are done on potential volunteers prior to being accepted.

Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Systems

Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Systems was founded in 1989 by Larry Nadeau to address and combat the growing issue of violence against women. Nadeau set out to develop a system of programming and instruction that would, "Teach women the options of self defense, so they may become viable considerations to the woman who is attacked.

Since its modest beginning in 1989, RAD Systems has developed into a system that takes a holistic approach to opposing violence within our society. It is the organization’s belief that we can revolutionize our violent culture through education and opposing societal violence at every level.

RAD Systems has grown into a network of over 6,000 instructors, teaching over 2,500 programs in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Because RAD Systems teaches from an established, accredited program, it also offers the support of an international network of instructors. All RAD Systems Program instructors complete a rigorous training program and are certified upon successful completion. All of the RAD Programs teach techniques that are easy to learn, retain, and use under stress in threatening situations.

RAD Programs are designed around a person’s natural desire to protect themselves from harm. Also, the techniques taught in the class are designed so anyone at any age or physical ability can be successful.

Finally, all RAD participants who complete any of the RAD programs are entitled to take any, or all, portions of the class they completed for free for the rest of their lives at any RAD program worldwide.

Please for more information about classes.

Sex Offender Registry

Colorado Revised Statute 16-22-108 requires that persons convicted of a sexual offense or sexually related crime register with a law enforcement agency. Colorado Revised Statute 16-22-108(6) mandates that the person who is subject to the mandatory sex offender registration provision shall bear the cost associated with processing that registration.

The following fees will be required from the person registering as a sex offender:

  • Initial registration fee $75.00
  • Quarterly registration fee $25.00
  • Annual Registration fee $25.00


The Glendale Police Department believes the monitoring of sex offenders is a high priority. Random address verifications are conducted on all sex offenders.

Sex Offenders needing to register must call 303-759-1511 and leave a message to set up an appointment.
