We can fingerprint you at the Police Department office during the following days and times: Mondays: 8 - 10 a.m. Wednesdays: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Fridays: 3 – 5 p.m.
Fingerprints are done on a first-come, first-served basis. No appointments will be scheduled.
All requests for police reports must be in writing. There is a specific form that needs to be completed and signed before any copy can be released. You can obtain this form in the link below or from the Police Department.
By Colorado law, we are allowed three business days to respond to the written request. Generally, reports can be available sooner than the three days. Many reports, however, are not immediately available:
1) If a report is still under investigation, it cannot be released unless authorized by the investigating officer.
2) If there are any circumstances where the report would need to be redacted according to Colorado Open Records Act/Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act.
3) If the report is in storage.
4) If the report has been destroyed in accordance with the Colorado Archives Destruction Schedule.
The fee for a copy of a report is $2 to pull the report and $0.25 per page. We accept cash or checks only.
For traffic accident reports, if you are the driver and/or owner of the vehicle, there is no charge for the report.
The completed and signed request form can be emailed to PDRecords@windsorgov.com or faxed to 970-686-7478.
If the vehicle is legal to drive (has a current license plate — even if from another state — or temporary plate, completely operable, etc.), you can bring the vehicle to the Police Department. a) We will need you to bring some official paperwork with the VIN on it — the title, previous registration, bill of sale, insurance card, etc. b) VIN inspections can be done at the Police Department on the following days and times: Mondays: 8 – 10 a.m. Wednesdays: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Fridays: 3 – 5 p.m.
These will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. No appointments will be scheduled.
If the vehicle is NOT legal to drive and you live, and the vehicle is located, within the town limits, one of our Community Service Officers may come to you to complete the inspection. You will need to call the Police Department Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 970-674-6400 to speak with one of them to schedule. a) The Community Service Officer will need to see the above-referenced official paperwork at the time of the inspection.
If you are a town resident, there is no fee. If you are not a town resident, the fee is $15 (cash or check only)
The Town of Windsor has Municipal Codes governing dogs, and those can be found in the Windsor Municipal Code Chapter 7. Because of the codes regarding dogs at large, our officers will pick up dogs found to be roaming without their owners. If the dog has an identification tag, the officer will attempt to contact the owner. If this is unsuccessful or the owner cannot pick up the dog immediately, the dog will be taken to Garden Valley Vet Clinic. Before the owner or responsible party can claim the dog at Garden Valley Vet, they will need to come to the Police Department with a photo ID to obtain the necessary paperwork. An owner of a missing dog can call the Police Department to report it missing and we will notify the officers to be on the look-out. If the dog is located by the owner, we ask that they also notify us, so that we will no longer look for the dog. The Town of Windsor does not have codes regarding cats at large, so officers will not pick them up.
To report any graffiti on public and/or private properties, call the Police Department at 970-674-6400 or submit information online through YourGOV.
