While many of us are sheltering at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, Colorado’s law enforcement officers have been out working to keep our state safe and serving our communities. 

They are serving on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic for us, and we want to express our thanks. Please join us in saying, “#ThankBlue” by sharing a photo of yourself holding up a #ThankBlue sign or a picture of the sign hung in your window! 

When you share your photo on social media, please be sure to include the hashtag, #ThankBlue along with your post! We have created a pre-colored sign as well as a coloring page that kids (or kids at heart!) can fill in. If you don’t have access to a printer, no problem! Just write #ThankBlue on a piece of paper to create your own masterpiece.

COVID-19: Important Resources for State, Local, and Tribal Officials from DHS

Posted: Apr. 17, 2020

  • Coronavirus Guidelines for America: On Tuesday, March 31, the White House announced updated Coronavirus Guidelines for America, extending social distancing efforts through April 30. On April 3, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidance recommending individuals wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g. grocery stores and pharmacies, particularly in areas of significant community-based transmission. On April 8, CDC also provided guidelines regarding when people in critical infrastructure roles can return to work after being exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19. Additional information on critical infrastructure below.
  • Up-To-Date Information: The most up-to-date, verified information and guidance can be found via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Coronavirus Disease 2019 website The Coronavirus Task Force holds frequent briefings, which can be viewed live here.
  • COVID-19 Response and Recovery Primer: Response and recovery efforts are locally executed, state managed, and federally supported. It is important that requests for assistance, including for critical supplies, get routed through the proper channels as soon as possible. Learn more about the response and recovery process via this important resource Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic: Response and Recovery Through Federal-State-Local-Tribal Partnership. FEMAs public assistance guidance for COVID-19 response efforts can be found here. Guidance for Tribal Governments can be found here.
  • Critical Infrastructure Workforce Guidelines: On March 16th, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued updated critical infrastructure guidance in response to the COVID-19 emergency. DHS issued revised guidance on March 28th (see Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response). The guidance, and accompanying list, is intended to help State, local, tribal and territorial officials as they work to protect their communities, while ensuring continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security. The list is advisory in nature and is not a federal directive or standard.
  • Rural Resource Guide: USDA and Federal partners have programs that can be used to provide immediate and long term assistance to rural communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. These programs can support recovery efforts for rural residents, businesses, and communities. USDA developed a resource guide for State, Local, and Tribal leaders, and other stakeholders, which can be found here: COVID-19 Federal Rural Resource Guide.
  • Coronavirus Fact vs. Myth: Rumors can easily circulate within communities during a crisis. FEMA setup a website here to help the public distinguish between rumors and facts regarding the response to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Fraud & Scam Protection: The Department of Justice is remaining vigilant in detecting, investigating, and prosecuting wrongdoing related to the crisis. Find out how you can protect yourself and helpful resources on DOJs Coronavirus Fraud Prevention website here. The Federal Trade Commission has also established a website here with helpful information to help consumers avoid coronavirus-related scams.
  • Mental Health Resources: Natural disasters including such pandemics as the coronavirus outbreak can be overwhelming and also can seriously affect emotional health. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administrations (SAMHSA) Disaster Distress Helpline 1-800-985-5990 (or text TalkWithUs to 66746) provides 24/7, 365-day-a-year crisis counseling and support to anyone who is seeking help in coping with the mental or emotional effects caused by developments related to the coronavirus pandemic.

A Message from the Denver Division of Albertson/Safeway Grocery Stores

Posted: Apr. 15, 2020

As the COVID-19 crisis continues, Albertsons/Safeway has made the decision to keep its grocery stores open to support the needs of our communities. Our work is in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply and we have a special responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule. We have changed the hours of operation to 7 AM to 8PM and we have placed private security personnel from Securitas and our own internal security staff in several locations to best serve our customers while keeping them and our employees as safe as possible.

We thank you for your service and understand the immense pressure you and your officers are under during this pandemic. At many of our stores, lines form prior to opening, with many people looking for the same items. Currently, the majority of the customers are being responsible and are grateful that we are open.

Looking ahead, we are asking for your continued support and partnership to help ensure everyone remains safe in our stores and we can keep our stores open. This request is as simple as sending frequent patrols through our store parking lots and having officers as visible as possible, as time allows. Your partnership and support are vital to our efforts to support our communities during this pandemic.
