Reporting speeding vehicles
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) has a traffic unit that addresses the ongoing problem of speeding in residential neighborhoods. It encourages citizens to call the traffic safety hotline at 303-660-7539 and report speeding vehicles.
Report the license plate number, description of the vehicle and the time of day the speeding occurred. A deputy may answer the hotline or, if not, callers may leave a message with information, and the DCSO will follow up. DCSO units are dispatched in marked or unmarked cars to specific areas to monitor the traffic.
Posted speed limits, as well as the DCSO priority traffic task force patrolling neighborhoods, are in place to ensure the safety of kids walking to school and waiting for school buses, people riding bikes, pedestrians crossing streets and wildlife on the roadways.
